Product Description

More than 143 years after its initial dedication, Provo’s prized jewel on the corner of Center Street and University Avenue erupted in a devastating fire. When the smoke finally cleared from the charred wreckage, President Thomas S. Monson received the word of the Lord. Now, barely five years following the disaster, Latter-Day Saints the world over rejoice in the completion of the Church’s 150th operating temple in the dispensation of the fulness of times.

From renowned scholar Susan Easton Black and History of the Saints creators Glenn Rawson and Dennis Lyman comes the journey from tabernacle to temple. Discover the compelling origin, tragic destruction, and miraculous reconstruction of the Provo City Center Temple. Celebrate the fulfillment of Brigham Young’s vision of its divinely appointed purpose as a “substantial house,” even the house of the Lord.
