November LDS nonfiction titles: Let light into your life

November LDS releasesIn conjunction with the Church’s new year study programs, our November LDS nonfiction titles include books designed to help in your study of the Old Testament and with Primary activities.

Of particular interest, “Visions of Glory” author John Pontius, who passed away in late 2012, wrote a series of blog posts on his popular blog, “UnBlog My Soul,” that his wife, Terri, has compiled into a book. “Journey to the Veil” is that book and is among our November releases.

Watch for these titles in your local LDS bookstores throughout the month or, if you can’t wait that long, pre-order them right now through,, or
