The pure joy of eyewitness history, one author observed, lies in the vicarious thrill of experiencing the event. The Eyewitness History of the Church: Volume Two draws together hundreds of first-person, eyewitness accounts covering the period of growth and testing that followed the restoration of the Church. Each chapter in this innovative book consists of eyewitness narratives of central events. You will experience a whole new world of LDS Church history through snapshots of specific moments captured by those who were there. See the dedication of the Kirtland Temple through the eyes of Sylvia Cutler Webb and the distinct impression it made, despite her young age at the time. View the tragedy at Haun's Mill with Amanda Smith, who lost a husband and a son, and find hope in the story of the son who lived. Feel the power of Joseph Smith's rebuke of the prison guards in Richmond, as recorded by Parley P. Pratt. Cheer Hurrah for Israel! with Heber C. Kimball and Brigham Young as they embark on a mission to England. Marvel with Wilford Woodruff at the day of miraculous healings in Nauvoo. Rejoice with the sisters in Nauvoo at the formation of the Female Relief Society. Experience the Martyrdom at Carthage Jail with Willard Richards, who, in fulfillment of prophecy, was not harmed. For the past 175 years, these eyewitness accounts have helped shape the spiritual heritage of the Church around the world. They not only bear testimony of what occurred but also plant seeds of faith and belief in modern readers. This firsthand approach to learning about Church history will touch your heart, stir your imagination, expand your knowledge, and strengthen your testimony.
