On the cover: Christ with Boy, by Carl Heinrich Bloch.

Inside front cover: Joseph Smith Jr., by Grant Romney Clawson, after William Rogers, who is believed to be the original artist. President John Taylor (1808–87) wrote of the Prophet Joseph Smith: “The Prophet and Seer of the Lord, has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it. … He lived great, and he died great in the eyes of God and his people” (D&C 135:3).

Inside back cover: The Sacred Incline, by David Linn. © David Linn, may not be copied. On October 23, 1856, the Willie handcart company made the steep five-mile (8-km) ascent up Rocky Ridge in snow and a howling wind. Though they wrapped themselves in quilts, several died. Yet the company pressed forward with hope and faith in the Atonement of Jesus Christ, as symbolized by the covering floating over their heads.

Andersen, John Luke, Matthew Reier, Christina Smith, Les Nilsson, Scott Davis, Amber Clawson, Rod Boam, Emily Leishman, Geoffrey McAllister, and Dustin Fife; in Bahamas by Bookie Joseph; in Brazil by Laureni Fochetto; in Cambodia by Trevor Wright; in Mexico by Cristian Barragan and Israel Gutiérrez; in Philippines by Danny Soleta and L.
