Product Description

Winner of the 1996 Frankie and John Kenneth Orton Award for LDS


When the Lord instructed the Saints in Kirtland to build a temple, he said, “Establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God” (D&C 88:119). Michael Wilcox identifies the blessing that temple work brings to our everyday lives. He discusses the temple as a house as learning where we can understand the most powerful principles of the gospel and receive inspiration for our families and ourselves. He explains how the temple is a house of refuge where we can escape the trials and troubles of the world. He defines the phrase “house of order” and talks about how the temple as a house of glory, describing the wonderful experiences that come to those who serve there, and especially to those who labor for their kindred dead.

Great to listen to whilst travelling to the temple !

I cannot speak highly enough about these CD's. Brother Wilcox has such a strong testimony of the temple which comes across as he speaks. My husband and I have listened to these CD's over and over in the car whenever we travel (especially to the temple as we live over 5 hours away) Each time we listen to them we gain greater insights into the the temple and how regular temple worship affects every aspect of our lives for the better. We will use this as a basis for many family home evenings and dinner table discussions. I have recommended these CD's to everyone I know !!

Favorite Church book

This is the finest Church book I've ever read. Bro. Wilcox is an extremely gifted teacher, and this is, in my opinion, his finest work. This book is unique in that it gives great doctrinal insights while also giving extremely moving personal experiences. In doing that, the book reaches both the scholarly and the general audience of the Church.

Great insight
