Recipient of the Benny Award of Excellence, an award given to companies that exhibit excellence in printing and design. This book is based on the research and study of C. Mark Hamilton, Ph.D., Architectural History. The publisher states, "For over one hundred years the Salt Lake Temple has stood as a visual symbol and monument to its people and still figures prominently in the lives of the faithful of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Its sacred nature and geographical location were central to the Mormon doctrine of gathering. The Church's removal to the Great Basin region was seen as fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy that the Lord would be 'established in the tops of the mountains.'" This book provides 208 pages with over 200 color and archival photographs, revealing the history, planning and symbolism with full views of every room of the interior, each spot varnished for added luster and printed on acid-free paper for the preservation of the book and its contents."
