LDS Doctrine is rich in symbolism, and nowhere do we find greater symbolism than in the temple. By examining the symbols on the Nauvoo, Kirtland, and Salt Lake temples, the authors skillfully demonstrate that “we begin to understand the symbolic language of the Lord which, in turn, prepares us for the symbolism that we will encounter within.”
Symbols in Stone: Symbolism on the Early Temples of the Restoration is carefully documented using the scriptures as well as recorded accounts of latter-day temples seen in vision before their construction. It is essential reading for all Latter-day Saints who want to better understand the vital role of temples in the latter days.
