Inside front cover: Mary Anoints the Feet of Christ, by Robert T. Barrett, oil on canvas, 22″ x 28″, 1990. “Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? … Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this” (John 12:3–5, 7).

Inside back cover: Cove Fort, by Ken B. Baxter, oil on linen, 24″ x 36″, 1988. Courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Ford Thomas Rose. Built by the Church in 1867 when Utah was a U.S. territory, Cove Fort was a pioneer wilderness outpost located in south central Utah. The 100-by-100-foot walled structure is the only one of the Church pioneer forts that still stands in its entirety. The fort has been restored and is now open to visitors.
