The Universe is built on symbols; lifting our thoughts from man to God, from earth to heaven, from time to eternity...God teaches with symbols: it is His favorite way of teaching Orson F. Whitney. LDS doctrine is rich in symbolism, and nowhere do we find greater symbolism than in the temple. By examining the symbols on the Nauvoo, Kirtland, and Salt Lake temples, the authors skillfully demonstrate that we begin to understand the symbolic language of the Lord which, in turn, prepares us for the symbolism that we will encounter within. Symbols in Stone is carfully documented using the scriptures as well as recorded accounts of Latter-day temples seen in vision before their construction. It is essential reading for all Latter-day Saints who want to better understand the vital role of temples in the latter days.

About the Author:

Matthew B. Brown has been researchng temple symbolism for nearly ten years, ever since his LDS mission when he was confronted with false statements about the nature of the symbols on the exterior of the Salt Lake Temple. His research led him into numerous fascinating and faith-promoting stories about the early temples of the Church. Brown has expanded his work in a recently released title: The Gate of Heaven.
