"Though argument does not create conviction, lack of it destroys belief. What seems to be proved may not                                         be embraced; but what no one shows the ability to defend is quickly abandoned.  Rational argument does not 
create belief, but it maintains a climate in which belief may flourish." (Austin Farrer on C. S. Lewis.)
 
 
BOOK OF MORMON NEWS:
 

Lavell Edwards, legendary BYU football coach and mentor dies at age 86.

Some of his legendary quotes include: 

From Steve Young: "The No. 1 quality that coach had was a gift — I'm going to say it was from heaven — that he had the ability to look at you and get a sense of you and be able to have a vision for your future. To see things that you didn't see, to see potential in you that you didn't know about. … It was personal to you."

Coach Edwards: "They used to say when we went to (the Holiday Bowl in) San Diego that BYU fans would bring a $50 bill and the Ten Commandments and never break either one of them.” 

Coach Edwards:  “The goals and successes of my professional life pale in comparison to my personal goals of an eternal family, receiving exaltation and being with the Savior again.”

Editor:  Lavell Edwards loved the Book of Mormon and quoted it often.
 
Church gives $1 million donation to USU Mormon Studies Program
 
Philip Barlow, USU's full-time Mormon studies professor, says that the donation from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints came with no strings attached and will pay for guest speakers, symposia and fellowships for students and will ensure the future of the program.  
 
Searchable Joseph Smith Chronology now available:

Joseph Smith's remarkable life is here recorded as a sequence that can be searched by date (year or month) or by category tags (personal life, visions and revelations, writings, ecclesiastical duties, legal events, travels, and political events). The chronology lists events that can be tied to specific days or months. Each entry contains a brief summary along with references for further information.

Public Selects Book of Mormon as Fourth Most Influential Book in America:

The Book of Mormon was highlighted Wednesday as one of America's treasured tomes at the Library of Congress, which displayed several rare editions as well as the 1829 copyright record filed by church founder Joseph Smith.  Nearly every Mormon in Congress as well as high-profile members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from the Washington region pored over the first and third editions, an original Book of Commandments from the faith's founding and other rare items that are part of the Library of Congress collection.
