Artist and author Chad Hawkins has devoted a lifetime to sharing the sermons that temples teach. Commemorating the landmark occasion of the dedication of the 150th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Temples of the New Millennium brings together little-known facts and compelling true stories of the faith and miracles behind 150 latter-day houses of the Lord. In telling the story of each temple through the words and experiences of those who built it, this beautiful keepsake volume will give your family an even greater appreciation for the marvelous work that the Lord is directing on both sides of the veil.
Each temple is a labor of love, faith, and sacrifice. Find out why President Gordon B. Hinckley proclaimed this "the greatest era of temple building ever witnessed" as you come to know and love each house of the Lord better than ever before with Temples of the New Millennium.
This book has quickly become one of my favorites! Reading this book has given me a much larger appreciation for temples, and the sacrifices that are made to build them. Chad Hawkins has done a wonderful job including individual facts and stories about each temple! I have also learned more about the church and members from around the world by reading this book. I will definitely keep this book in mind when giving gifts to friends and family!
This is a wonderful book although I am still in the process of reading it. In my copy there two temples so far that I know of that did not have a sketch. There were two maps for each instead of a sketch and a map. They were the Las Vegas and Birmingham temples. I like the idea of the hidden images even though some were hard to find. Hopefully the above issue can be resolved some how.
We absolutely LOVED this book. The drawings are wonderful, the information very informative. We loved the hidden pictures in each drawing! A great book for the whole family!
What a fantastic book! Chad Hawkins has spent years and years not only drawing these temples, but researching their individual histories. Each temple carries with it a powerful story with many different facts. This is a must read and a great reference for any Latter Day Saint who truly wishes to strengthen his/her testimony of the divinity of our Father in Heavens earthy home.
