Temas del templo en el juramento y el convenio del sacerdocio

We're excited to announce that the Spanish edition of Temple Themes in the Oath and Covenant of the Priesthood, titled Temas del templo en el juramento y el convenio del sacerdocio, is ready for publication!

Daniel Plata, a member of the Church from Buenos Aires, Argentina, kindly volunteered to do a Spanish translation of the book, and did a masterful job – correcting some errors in the English edition and even updating the citations to refer to Spanish equivalents of English publications when available. He stated his hope that: "With the blessing of Heaven this book will be a great inspiration for all Spanish readers." Eduardo Aragon and Ronald Ross assisted with reviews of some parts of the translation.

    New editions!

    Jeff Bradshaw has released updated editions of three of his books:
    • In God's Image and Likeness 1 (2014 edition)
      The 2014 edition contains corrections and updates throughout. The black and white figures in the pdf version have been replaced by color. The four-volume 8x10 inch softcover edition has been replaced by a two-volume full-size 8 1/2 x 11 softcover edition.
    • Temple Themes in the Book of Moses (2014 edition)
      The 2014 edition has been expanded from 198 to 220 pages, with corrections and updates throughout and the addition of two appendices: 1) Paul on Women's Veiling of the Face in Prayer, and 2) Covenants vs. Contracts.
    • Temple Themes in the Oath and Covenant of the Priesthood (2014 edition)
      The 2014 edition has been expanded from 380 to 423 pages, with corrections and updates throughout. The appendix "Questions about Genesis and the Book of Moses" has additional material relating to questions about the documentary hypothesis, the historicity of the Old Testament, whether or not the Book of Moses can be appropriately characterized as "inspired pseudepigrapha," and whether or not it can be safely concluded that Moses chapters 1, 6, and 7 have no basis in antiquity.
    Those that purchased the PDFs of previous editions are eligible to download the updated PDF(s); just download using the link you received at the time of the original purchase, or contact Jeff directly if you can't find it or have any troubles downloading. Clarification: For those wondering, both the print editions and PDFs of the above books have been updated.
