Church History 1805 to 1832. This volume is the first of three on Church History and the Doctrine and Covenants. It covers Church history and the revelations in the Doctrine and Covenants from the birth of Joseph Smith in 1805 through the beginnings of the Kirtland and Missouri periods. We learn concerning the First Vision, the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, the restoration of the priesthood, and many early revelations given to individual members of the Church. We study the organization of the Church in 1830 and the migration of the Saints to Kirtland, Ohio, where the law and order of the Church is given, the law of consecration begins, and spiritual gifts are manifested. We also read concerning the early events in Missouri, where the land of Zion is dedicated for the gathering of the Saints. In all, it covers 27 years of Church History, and covers sections 1-99 of the Doctrine and Covenants and the Joseph Smith History in the Pearl of Great Price. The cover features ?Young Joseph,? a painting of the Prophet Joseph Smith pondering in the Sacred Grove, by Walter Rane.

About the author

Randal S. Chase spent his childhood years in Nephi, Utah, where his father was a dry land wheat farmer and a businessman. In 1959 their family moved to Salt Lake City and settled in the Holladay area. He served a full-time mission in the Central British (England Central) Mission from 1968 to 1970. He returned home and married Deborah Johnsen in 1971. They are the parents of six children?two daughters and four sons?and an ever-expanding number of grandchildren.

He was called to serve as a bishop at the age of 27 in the Sandy Crescent South Stake area of the Salt Lake Valley. He served six years in that capacity, and has since served as a high councilor, a stake executive secretary and clerk, and in many other stake and ward callings. Regardless of whatever other callings he has received over the years, one was nearly constant: He has taught Gospel Doctrine classes in every ward he has ever lived in as an adult?a total of 35 years.

Dr. Chase was a well-known media personality on Salt Lake City radio stations in the 1970s. He left on-air broadcasting in 1978 to develop and market a computer-based management, sales, and music programming system to radio and television stations in the United States, Canada, South America, and Australia. After the business was sold in 1984, he supported his family as a media and business consultant in the Salt Lake City area.

Having a great desire to teach young people of college age, he determined in the late 1980s to pursue his doctorate, and received his Ph.D. in Communication from the University of Utah in 1997.ÿ He has taught communication courses at that institution as well as at Salt Lake Community College and Dixie State University for 21 years. He served as Communication Department chair and is currently a full-time professor at Dixie State University in St. George, Utah.

Concurrently with his academic career, Brother Chase has served as a volunteer LDS Institute and Adult Education instructor in the CES system since 1994, both in Salt Lake City and St. George, where he currently teaches a weekly Adult Education class for three stakes in the Washington area. He has also conducted multiple Church History tours and seminars. During these years of gospel teaching, he has developed an extensive library of lesson plans and handouts which are the predecessors to these study guides.

Dr. Chase previously published a thirteen-volume series of study guides on the Book of Mormon, Church History, the Old Testament, and the New Testament. The series, titled Making Precious Things Plain, along with four smaller study guides on Isaiah, Jeremiah, the story of the Nativity, and the final week of our Lord?s atoning sacrifice, are designed to assist teachers and students of the gospel, as well as those who simply want to study on their own. Several of these books are also available in the Spanish language.

La historia de la Navidad: María, José y el Niño Jesús desde una perspectiva personal es un relato conmovedor y esencial de la historia familiar de la Navidad. Centrándose en la vida personal de Juan el Bautista, José, María, el profeta Nefi en América, y el Niño Jesús, que nos recuerda la extraordinaria fe y sacrificios de estos personajes clave en la narrativa sobre la Natividad. Los lectores se sorprenderán con la fe y la caridad de José a María antes de que supieran algo sobre el origen divino de su concepción. Ellos serán tocados por la fe y la obediencia de la muy joven virgen María a pesar de la amenaza de rechazo y la muerte. Ellos se sentirán inspirados por la fe de Nefi mientras rezaban por la venida del Mesías para salvar la vida de su pueblo en las Américas. Los lectores van a tener una nueva apreciación de la condescendencia de Dios Todopoderoso, el Príncipe de la Paz, al permitirse nacer Él mismo en un lugar tan bajo, humilde y sucio. El Dr. Randal S. Chase, un instructor veterano del CES (por sus siglas en Inglés: Church Educational System, Sistema Educativo de la Iglesia) y del Instituto, proporciona información detallada sobre estos eventos que no se pueden encontrar en ningún otro lugar, y lo hace con un estilo relajado y comprensible. Los lectores se encontrarán que han ganado conocimientos y comprensión, que han eludido antes, de esta historia del nacimiento de Jesús. La cubierta exhibe la hermosa pintura del "Viaje a Belén" de Joseph Brickey.

La Semana del sacrificio expiatorio: "Para esto he venido al mundo" es un resumen de agitación de la semana más importante en la historia del universo de nuestro Padre. Esta es la semana en que Jesucristo realizó su acto de misericordia y la gracia que permite a todos a superar todas las cosas y regresar a nuestro Padre Celestial. La historia se cuenta en un relato cronológico que añade contexto y el significado de los eventos individuales de esa última semana. Jesús entra en Jerusalén triunfante, con multitudes que gritaban "¡Hosanna!" Pero una semana más tarde, esas mismas multitudes exigieron que los romanos "¡Crucifícalo!" Los eventos intermedios muestran cómo Jesús ministró a la gente, la curación y el perdón y la enseñanza. Él limpió el templo, condenó la hipocresía de los líderes religiosos de Jerusalén, y profetizó la destrucción de la ciudad y el templo. En la noche antes de su crucifixión, Jesús se reunió con sus discípulos, les enseñó, e instituyó la ordenanza de la Santa Cena. Entonces Él se retiró al Huerto de Getsemaní, donde por algún proceso que está más allá de nuestra comprensión, Él sufrió por los pecados, tristezas, decepciones, dificultades, dolores y circunstancias injustas de cada niño viva de Dios en cada parte de nuestro vasto universo en cada dispensación de tiempo. Jesús entonces traicionado, arrestado y juzgado ilegalmente. Se declara que el Hijo de Dios, permanece insultos odiosas y humillantes, y es condenado a muerte. Él sufre tortura indecible, concluyendo con su ser clavado a una cruz. Murió, atendía a los espíritus en el mundo de los espíritus, luego se levantó de entre los muertos. Él enseñó a sus discípulos durante 40 días, y luego ascendió al cielo con la promesa de que un día regresaría en un gran poder. Fue, sin duda, la semana más consecuente de la historia humana. Dr. Randal S. Chase, un veterano de la CES y el Instituto instructor, proporciona información detallada sobre ellos en un estilo relajado y comprensible. Los lectores se encontrarán ganando conocimientos y la comprensión acerca de la semana del sacrificio expiatorio que pueden haber escapado antes. La cubierta cuenta con la imagen imponente de las cruces en el Gólgota, por Carl Bloch.
