In addressing a global audience of young adult Latter-day Saints on Sunday, Sept. 11, Elder Dale G. Renlund issued a simple invitation: Learn and understand the history of the Church and learn from the example of its members by reading “Saints: Boldly, Nobly, and Independent.

“Our history is inspiring,” said Elder Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “This history is our shared heritage, whether we descend from early pioneers, later pioneers, or if we are pioneers in the faith.”

The Apostle was joined by his wife, Sister Ruth Renlund, in speaking to a few thousand young adults gathered in the historic Salt Lake Tabernacle, but their message was broadcast to hundreds of thousands more online on Sunday.

The two focused their address on experiences recorded in the third volume of the “Saints” series, which released earlier this year.

“This narrative history includes stories of faithful Latter-day Saints of the past. It gives us real-life examples of people who loved the gospel of Jesus Christ, made covenants, and moved along the covenant path to come to know our Savior, Jesus Christ,” Elder Renlund said.
