Young adults are invited to watch a worldwide devotional with Elder Dale G. Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Ruth, on September 11, 2022.
During the hourlong broadcast, Elder and Sister Renlund will highlight stories found in the third volume of “Saints: The Story of the Church of Jesus Christ in the Latter Days.”
“Our history is inspiring,” said Elder Renlund. “I invite you to read ‘Saints’ to learn and understand the history of the Church and learn from the example of its members. ‘Saints’ is extraordinarily well researched and reliable.”
“This volume chronicles the history of the Church between the dedication of the Salt Lake Temple in 1893 and the dedication of the Bern Switzerland Temple in 1955,” said Sister Renlund. “Volume 3 of ‘Saints’ helps us understand our own history, the people who lived it, and our Savior.”
Volume 3, “Boldly, Nobly, and Independent,” shares the narrative history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1893 to 1955. While the two previous volumes primarily cover the early restoration of the Church in the United States, Volume 3 illustrates the Church’s growth abroad. More than half of the book takes place outside the United States, with stories set in Europe, Asia, Africa, Central and South America, and Oceania.
“Why do we spend so much time telling these stories? It’s because these stories give us real-life examples of the power of coming to know our Savior,” said Elder Renlund.
