  1. Full Speech: Elder Christofferson on Book of Mormon at Library of Congress

    Since its initial publishing 186 years ago, the Book of Mormon has made an indelible mark not only on the lives of its serious readers but also on American popular culture at large.

    The book was added to the list of "Books That Shaped America" in 2013 and since June 2016 has been a part of the “America Reads” exhibit at the Library of Congress. The exhibit’s purpose is to foster new conversations about 65 books the American public says have had “a profound effect on American life.” The exhibit features some of the rarest and most interesting editions in the Library’s collections, including an original copy of the Book of Mormon. “[The Book of Mormon] has spawned pageants and plays, appeared in films, inspired musical lyrics, and received 4 out of 5 stars on the Apple Store,” Elder D. Todd Christofferson said Wednesday at the exhibit, where he spoke for 20 minutes about the book’s history and impact. “It has been illustrated in comic strips, displayed in paintings, told through historical fiction, and imprinted on clothing. A copy of the Book of Mormon was even checked out to President Abraham Lincoln at the Library of Congress on November 18, 1861.”

    The Book of Mormon, a record of ancient-American civilizations, is a foundational scripture for Latter-day Saints, along with the Bible and other …

  2. The Search for Truth

    A 15-minute excerpt from the little-known 1960’s church film "The Search for Truth." With the kind permission of Brigham Young University, we are now posting this excerpt.

    The excerpt featured an opening statement by President David O. McKay on the value of science and the search for truth. This was followed by perspectives on science and religion by Wernher von Braun (a prominent non-LDS researcher who has been called the "Father of Rocket Science"), Harvey Fletcher (LDS physicist and Director of Bell Labs who was known as the "Father of Stereophonic Sound"), and Henry Eyring (LDS chemist and father of President Henry B. Eyring, president of the American Chemical Society and the Association for the Advancement of Science, and winner of the Wolf Prize in Chemistry, the National Medal of Science, and the Berzelius Medal for developing the Absolute Rate Theory). A personal story from Bro. Eyring about an extended family member whose relatives tried to persuade him from studying science out of worry for his faith is contrasted with the story of his own father’s encouragement for him as he left for college: "In this Church, you don’t have to believe anything that isn’t true."

  9. Elder Cook Speaks at BYU Jerusalem Center

    Elder Cook noted, “The genesis for this event was the extraordinary relationship and friendship that grew out of our collaborative effort to better get to know each other and our traditions that were important to both Jews and Latter-day Saints.”

    “Interestingly, in the United States we each have a population of between 6 to 7 million. The center of Jewish influence is New York City and the East Coast; the center of Latter-day Saint influence is in Utah and the surrounding states,” explained the Mormon apostle.

    “The Jewish delegation is composed of exceptional individuals and is a remarkable representation of the mainstreams of Judaism,” said Elder Cook. “It also includes major Jewish organizations. We express particular appreciation to Robert Abrams, who has been the primary impetus in developing this relationship.”

    “We are grateful to join together in this commemorative event, which is also a commemoration of our friendship and our desire to unitedly participate in certain humanitarian projects in the future,” he added.

    Elder Cook expressed appreciation to the New York delegation for arranging the meeting with the prime minister. He said, “the prime minister gave an impressive and comprehensive overview and update with respect to Israel.”

  10. Why fasting bolsters brain power: Mark Mattson at TEDxJohnsHopkinsUniversity

    Mark Mattson is the current Chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences at the National Institute on Aging. He is also a professor of Neuroscience at The Johns Hopkins University. Mattson is one of the foremost researchers in the area of cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
