Synopsis: Unique in the annals of great prophets, Moroni's ministry was moth mortal and angelic. In his mortal ministry, Moroni was warrior, prophet, and scribe. The unparalleled drama of his faith, his role as a warrior and military leader, and his steadfast determination as a scribe of sacred records is brought to life in this book/ Of even greater importance were Moroni's angelic visitations which are detailed in Moroni - Ancient Prophet, Modern Messenger. The author's purpose is to help the reader better comprehend the sacred mission of Moroni: to prepare the world for the restoration of the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. So that the reader will understand the singular role played by Moroni, the author unfolds a drama of temple sites dedicated, the many visitations made by this mighty man of God to Joseph Smith, his glorious role as prophet to America and guardian of the golden plates. In this scholarly work, carefully annotated explanations are given as to why Moroni is so closely identified with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - why his likeness is places at the pinnacle of temple spires - why he symbolizes the Restored Church for members and nonmembers alike. As this book reviews Moroni's role as both an ancient prophet, and a modern messenger it will provide insight and inspiration to every reader. Studying the angelic ministry of Moroni gives one probably the most penetrating look at the activities of a resurrected being available to men. Moroni is a fascinating person - this careful biography of his life makes fascinating reading.
About the Author: H. Donl Peterson, a native of Lehi, Utah, received his bachelor's and master's degrees from Brigham Young University and a doctorate in education from Washington State University. He was an instructor and administrator in the Church's seminary and institute of religion programs before joining the religion faculty at BYU in 1964. Brother Peterson's many assignments in religious education included Pearl of Great Price director; coordinator of Book of Mormon Studies; director of travel studies to the Holy Land and to Book of Mormon lands in Mexico and Central America; and director of semester-abroad programs and Know Your Religion lecture series. He contributed to Church magazines, manuals, and scholarly journals, and was the author of study guides and books on the Pearl of Great Price and the Book of Mormon. In the Church, H. Donl Peterson served in many positions, including terms as bishop of three wards, high councilor in three stakes, and president of the BYU 15th Stake. He and his wife, the former Mary Lou Schenk, are the parents of four sons and two daughters.
