The Old Testament contains some of the most beloved stories in all scripture. It’s also a treasure trove of doctrinal insights and foreshadowing of Christ and His mission. And yet, many Latter-day Saints find this standard work intimidating. In the 2009 Sidney B. Sperry Symposium, talented teachers and respected scholars offer fresh perspectives on several key aspects of this sacred book. Some of the topics covered in this year’s volume include eternal marriage, motherhood, and family in the Old Testament; the sanctifying power of true ritual worship; the relationship of vicarious sacrifice and our faith in Christ; what we learn from Isaiah’s servant songs and from Ruth’s story; a biblical pattern of the role of angels in salvation; creating, anointing, and empowering throughout the Old Testament; and personal temple worship.
Contributors to this Sperry Symposium volume include: Elder F. Melvin Hammond, Terry B. Ball, Daniel Belnap, Carol Frogley Ellertson, Alonzo L. Gaskill, Michael A. Goodman, Taylor Halverson, John Hilton III and Lani Hilton, Paul Y. Hoskisson, Jennifer C. Lane, Kerry Muhlestein, Jared T. Parker, Gaye Strathearn, and Lynne Hilton Wilson.
