For over one hundred years the Salt Lake Temple has stood as a visual symbol and monument to its people and still figures prominently in the lives of the faithful of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Its sacred nature and geographical location were central to the Mormon doctrine of gathering. The Church's removal to the Great Basin region was seen as fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy that the Lord would be “established in the tops of the mountains.”

Wake the editor!
by Brian - reviewed on April 23, 2012
The photographs and stories are great, but the pages describing and showing photographs of endowment rooms are OUT OF ORDER! The section page for the endowment rooms and pages for the first room come AFTER the subsequent rooms. This huge failure on the part of both the author and publisher greatly detracts from what otherwise would have been a great book on the Salt Lake Temple.
