Samuel M. Brown | First Principles and Ordinances

Join local author, Samuel M. Brown, for a reading and signing of his new book, First Principles and Ordinances.

Religion is not lived alone. A fresh focus on our relationships with God and other people can transform our understanding and experience of the gospel basics of faith, repentance, baptism, and the gift of the Holy Ghost. First Principles and Ordinances begins the work of outlining a Latter-day Saint relational theology by highlighting continuity between the gospel’s first principles and ordinances and the highest ordinances of LDS temple worship.

Samuel M. Brown is Assistant Professor of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and Medical Ethics and Humanities at the University of Utah and an intensive care physician in the Shock Trauma ICU at Intermountain Medical Center. His award-winning book In Heaven as It Is on Earth: Joseph Smith and the Early Mormon Conquest of Death was published by Oxford University Press in 2012. He is also translator of Aleksandr Men’s Son of Man: The Story of Christ and Christianity (Oakwood Publications, 1998).
