Publisher Description

In 1820, a young farm boy in search of truth has a vision of God the Father and Jesus Christ. Three years later, an angel guides him to an ancient record buried in a hill near his home. With God’s help, he translates the record and organizes the Savior’s church in the latter days. Soon others join him, accepting the invitation to become Saints through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.


But opposition and violence follow those who defy old traditions to embrace restored truths. The women and men who join the church must choose whether or not they will stay true to their covenants, establish Zion, and proclaim the gospel to a troubled world.


The Standard of Truth is the first book in Saints, a new, four-volume narrative history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Fast-paced, meticulously researched, Saints recounts true stories of Latter-day Saints across the globe and answers the Lord’s call to write history “for the good of the church, and for the rising generations” (Doctrine and Covenants 69:8).

    Academic Knowledge of the Gospel

    This book brings knowledge to the reader about the gospel and the reality that god work’s thru imperfect beings. Nothing is perfect here on earth yet rust doesn’t make it, as a whole, bad when something or someone doesn’t perform completely free of error.

    PS Can you publish the second version on here, because I find it a lot more enjoyable to read here than in the church app. Plus it’d be good for people that don’t want the app.

    Inspiring & Amazing!

    I enjoyed learning more about the History. It was inspiring and amazing to learn from those who participated in the early days of the restoration of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
