Welcome to Lehi’s Library. This blog exists primarily as a place for me to archive in one convenient place some of the many interesting things I learn in my studies of LDS apologetics and scholarship. I used to study and learn interesting and exciting things about the gospel but would soon forget about them or would not be able to access them easily. With this blog that problem is solved.

Feel free to browse my blog. You can navigate by using the “search” function or by using the “topics” at the top of every page. Hopefully you will find something useful to you. Feel free to use my research in any way you want, providing you give me credit for my work.

I enjoy a good discussion, so please don’t hesitate to comment on any post you would like to.  I am always interested to learn from those who disagree with me. I try to follow the pattern for inter-religious dialogue that was proposed by renown biblical scholar Krister Stendahl:

(1) When you are trying to understand another religion, you should ask the adherents of that religion and not its enemies.

(2) Don’t compare your best to their worst.

(3) Leave room for “holy envy.” (By this Stendahl meant that you should be willing to recognize elements in the other religious tradition or faith that you admire and wish could, in some way, be reflected in your own religious tradition or faith.)

I am a believing member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have a testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ. I believe that He paid the ultimate debt in order that you and I might be redeemed. I believe that Jesus Christ restored His church in these latter days, and I feel very blessed to be a part of this glorious work. Let this blog stand as a witness to my testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

Feel free to email me at lehislibrary@gmail.com if you have questions or comments. Or, leave a note in the comments section of any of my articles.

    Thanks for this blog, James. I may find it useful.
    Thanks especially for your quote of Krister Stendahl. As more evangelicals follow this man’s advice more of them will realize that the LDS is Christian; and as more Mormons follow his advice more of them will realize that non-Mormon Christians aren’t second-class.
    I believe this is happening!

    God the Father is fantastic, and Jesus Christ is awesome!
    I pray for their blessings to fall on you.

    Dear James….
    There are no coincidences in life… :)
    I was doing research on something I wanted to forward and here I was lead to your blog, when I clicked myself through endless different google search recommendations. I’m a faithful LDS too and I’m looking forward to dig myself through your “archieve”.
    I live in Germany BTW…

    Hello there,

    Our young men and young women organization recently put together this short 12 minute film for the Stake film festival. It centers on the “For the Strength of Youth” booklet and was received to rave reviews. I thought the viewers of your blog would enjoy it. Think M. Night Shyamalan meets the Mormon Church. You have to watch to the very end of the film. M. Night would be proud. The link is below. Thanks for your consideration!

    Warm regards,

    articles or is that allowed. I have tries many times and can only
    get page 1 and no further. I am very interested In the February
    3 2011 article on Cleon Skousen’s Intelligence Theory of Atonement.
