Here’s a guide for travelers in search of truth. It’s a story for those restless with religion yet curious about the Creator. Those who hunger for an authentic relationship with God will relate with author Lew Phelps.

Lew started life in Jerusalem, Utah. His early family, who crossed the plains with Brigham Young, settled the town and named it. Both sides of Lew’s family—for generations past—contributed to the history and fabric of the LDS Church. Yet the author’s familiarity with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is far more than family history. It’s personal.

A broken home and bruised heart moved Lew to seek help and meaning from above. He poured his life into LDS religious studies. But despite his best efforts, Lew came to believe that he could never please God—or know Him. He accepted the idea that "God helps those who help themselves." And it broke his heart to admit that he could not help himself.

Lew gave up on God, but God never let go of Lew. In fact, the Heavenly Father drew even closer. In his weakness, Lew discovered God’s strength, comfort, and eternal love. He found an intimate connection with the Source of life!

From Jerusalem to Moroni and Back marks the way for those who seek a deeper or renewed spiritual walk. The author’s insights are based upon the sure foundation of Scripture—the Bible, God’s infallible Word. And Lew’s knowledge of the Savior, Jesus Christ, is personal. He grew beyond religion and was given a relationship not based upon labor, but born in love—God’s love. The Heavenly Father revealed the truth to Lew: God helps those who cannot help themselves.
