Orson Hyde was chosen as an original member of the Council of the Twelve in 1835, when the Mormon Church first organized this governing body. Orson's most well-known accomplishment was as a Mormon missionary to Jerusalem (1840-1842) to dedicate the land for the return of the Jews. Civil authorities in Jerusalem invited the development of a five-acre hillside garden, in honor of Orson Hyde, which was completed in 1979.Participating in the Mormon drama of crossing the plains in the U.S. several times and settling the West, Orson was a colonizing leader in western Iowa, also in what became western Nevada, and in central Utah. He was a major figure in Utah's Black Hawk Indian War (1865-1872).Using facts, details and personal experiences never before in print, Myrtle Hyde, the Hyde family genealogist, has used diaries, letters, notes, documents, reports, articles, speeches and letters to present a real-life depiction of Orson Hyde, apostle, teacher, missionary, orator, scriptorian, journalist, editor, lawyer, judge, statesman, colonizer, and administrator; also the husband of eight wives, the father of thirty-three children. Contains an extensive Index and Bibliography.

Excerpt from Speech of Elder Orson Hyde: Delivered Before the High Priests Quorum in Nauvoo, April 27th, 1845 Upon the Course and Conduct of Mr. Sidney Rigdon, and Upon the Merits of His Claims to the Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints The priesthood is the power by which all things are sustained, and it holds the keys of death and hell. It can bind on earth and it is bound in heaven. It can loose on earth and it is loosed in heaven. It can forgive sins on earth and they are for given in heaven. It can sit in judgment on earth and that judgment is sanctioned and recorded in heaven. Wherever you find a church, Mr. President, whose priesthood does not possess this power, know ye that that church is not the church of God according to the New Testament, neither according to the dic tates of the spirit of truth. N o doubt but that some of those who drove the Saints from Missouri, who robbed and murdered a portion of our brethren, either have, or will at some time, pray to God to have their souls converted, their sins forgiven, and to be prepared for a heavenly inheritance but they should be told, that unless they first get pardon of those whom they have offended, by repairing the wrongs they have done them, and conciliating their favour, that all their prayers and supplications are an abomination before God, and will only be accounted as sin upon their own heads, upon the heads of their children, and upon the heads of their childrens' children unto the fourth generation. The Saints hold the keys of these matters; and this arouses the contempt and indignation of the unbelievers, and they take occasion from these considerations to tantalize and offend us. Truly did Christ say that offences must come; but woe to them bywhom they come. Better that a mill-stone were hung about their neck and they be cast into the depths of the sea than to offend one of these little ones that believe in me: for as these hold the keys, they may turn them forever against those who offend them, and that refuse-to repent or make any satisfaction. In that case it were better for the offender if he had never been born. For whosoever sins the Saints retain, they are retained.

This four volume work, which was originally created as a university course, is a whole new approach to an advanced study of the Book of Mormon. In a sense, it is a private tutoring course. If the reader will concentrate on one verse at a time, drain the essential message from it, read any background material provided in the book by W. Cleon Skousen, and then apply the verse to his or her own life, they will be richly blessed. By this means, the reader will have a chance to absorb the message far more deeply and make the Book of Mormon a vital part of daily living. These books are easy to read and have proven highly popular with seminary students and those preparing for missions. They are also used as a family home evening course of study. Volume One covers 1 Nephi 1 to Jacob 7. This eBook includes the illustrations, footnotes, table of contents and page numbering from the printed format.

This is a reproduction of one of the few original books by Lorenzo Snow available today. It was originally published in 1851 in London, as President Snow says, “to my familiar friends, as a brief record of my mission.” President Snow’s mission was the first he was called on after he became a member of the Quorum of the Twelve. The focus of the mission was in the Piedmont region of Italy, close to the border of Monaco and Switzerland, and he later spent time in Switzerland. The mission in Italy was primarily among the Waldensians, an ancient sect of Christians who inhabited three valleys in the Italian Alps known as the Piedmont Valleys. (Waldensianism predates the Reformation by several hundred years and is completely separate from Catholicism.) Snow and his companions Joseph Toronto, Thomas Stenhouse, and Jabez Woodard initially had very little success in converting the Waldensians to Mormonism. However, after healing a three-year-old boy named Joseph Gay, they began to find converts. In the end, more than 150 Waldensians converted to Mormonism, and 70 eventually emigrated to Utah. This is a stirring record of a difficult mission, but one filled with faith and miracles. In 2013 as we study the teachings of Lorenzo Snow through the Teachings of the Presidents of the Church: Lorenzo Snow, I hope this book will make an important addition to the things we can learn from this powerful servant of God.
