Two Ancient Testaments of Jesus Christ, One Gospel God's Proclamation, Challenge, and Blessing to the World Two Testaments: A Comprehensive Comparison of the Teachings of the New Testament and the Book of Mormon has been released. It is a study of the theology of the New Testament and the Book of Mormon ("the two testaments") that proves and shows that their teachings and doctrines are the same--a singularity! After the two testaments, the message of Two Testaments is the strongest and boldest message of any book ever published. The two testaments proclaim that the principles of Jesus Christ--the principles of righteousness, the principles of power--are the governing principles of reality that are the solution and antidote to the world's challenges. Two Testaments presents Christianity in its original purity and totality. The fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ is destined to transform, revolutionize, and civilize the world without politics or contention. Universal freedom, equality, peace, prosperity, friendship, love, and joy will be a reality when individuals, families, societies, and the world learn to possess and bring forth the principles of Jesus Christ. This will unite the human race in one. The common, universal message of the two testaments witnesses that the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored with the fulness of its principles, ordinances, and organizations. Two Testaments is designed as a lifelong guidebook providing intelligence regarding the nature of God, the nature of reality, and the purpose of life. By proclaiming the infinite principles, atonement, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Two Testaments helps us understand our own purpose and mission in life. That which God, in His infinite state, desires us, in our finite state, to know about Him and His and our purpose in this finite existence is presented in the two testaments. We, as individuals, and the world, at large, will be judged by the books that God has given us. Visit AuthorHouse. com to purchase for the eBook format

The Routledge Handbook of Mormonism and Gender is an outstanding reference source to this controversial subject area. Since its founding in 1830, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has engaged gender in surprising ways. LDS practice of polygamy in the nineteenth century both fueled rhetoric of patriarchal rule as well as gave polygamous wives greater autonomy than their monogamous peers. The tensions over women’s autonomy continued after polygamy was abandoned and defined much of the twentieth century. In the 1970s, 1990s, and 2010s, Mormon feminists came into direct confrontation with the male Mormon hierarchy. These public clashes produced some reforms, but fell short of accomplishing full equality. LGBT Mormons have a similar history. These movements are part of the larger story of how Mormonism has managed changing gender norms in a global context. Comprising over forty chapters by a team of international contributors the Handbook is divided into four parts: • Methodological issues • Historical approaches • Social scientific approaches • Theological approaches. These sections examine central issues, debates, and problems, including: agency, feminism, sexuality and sexual ethics, masculinity, queer studies, plural marriage, homosexuality, race, scripture, gender and the priesthood, the family, sexual violence, and identity. The Routledge Handbook of Mormonism and Gender is essential reading for students and researchers in religious studies, gender studies, and women’s studies. The Handbook will also be very useful for those in related fields, such as cultural studies, politics, anthropology, and sociology.
