When It Doesn’t Make Sense

We are taught that actions have predictable reactions—but what do we do when those expectations fail us and life doesn’t make sense? We may ask questions like, “Why this? Why now?” and “What have I done to deserve this?” This book will show how Jesus added valuable insight into the different types of adversity that come with living in this fallen world. 


With hope for the future and the assurance that there will be answers eventually, When It Doesn’t Make Sense will help you feel peace while you wait for your own “eventually.”

How Do I Know If I Know?

It’s spiritual gut-check time! Now more than ever, young people are asking themselves important questions:

  • How do I know if I really have a testimony?
  • Am I ready to serve a mission?
  • What does the Spirit feel like?

John Bytheway suggests that we “F.E.E.L.” the truthfulness of the gospel through our feelings, our experiences, the many evidences we encounter, and our logical conclusions about how a loving God interacts with His children on the earth.

Moroni’s Guide to Surviving Turbulent Times

The prophet Moroni, who spent at least the last twenty years of his life alone and wandering to avoid being captured and killed, has in the latter days become one of the symbols of our religion. 


In this book, best-selling author John Bytheway suggests that Moroni’s last words were both intensely personal and universally applicable. John suggests that whatever latter-day challenges we face, we can successfully navigate them by “likening Moroni.”

Of Pigs, Pearls, & Prodigals: A Fresh Look at the Parables of Jesus

Bestselling author John Bytheway’s fascination with the parables of Jesus Christ grew deeper after his first visit to the Holy Land, where he “beheld in high definition the backdrop for the life and teachings of the Savior.” In this insightful volume, he discusses what he has learned about more than thirty parables, sharing cultural background and other information about them and offering ideas for how we can apply them today. Throughout, visual images clarify and enrich the discussion.

Beginners and seasoned students alike will enjoy this lively and practical treatment of the Savior’s parables.

Born This Happy Morning

The second verse of “Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful” begins, “Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning.” In this inspiring Christmas book, John Bytheway explores the miracle of that happy morning and what Christmas should mean to us. Although Christmas can feel over-commercialized and stressful, Born This Happy Morning helps readers recapture the magic of childhood Christmases by focusing on how we can give the joy of Christ’s light to those around us, reminding us that the spirit of Christmas is multiplied in our hearts when we share the spirit of Christ with others.

Golden Answers: Why We Need the Book of Mormon

Why do we need the Book of Mormon? Why isn’t the Bible enough? Each chapter of Golden Answers highlights an aspect of the gospel that the Book of Mormon clarifies for us in ways the Bible does not. The order and glory of the plan of salvation, including the reality of the Atonement and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, unfold beautifully as John examines that plan through the lens of Book of Mormon teachings.


Inviting us to move beyond being “casual readers” and become “serious students” of the scriptures, John helps us understand in a new way precious truths that were restored to the earth in the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ.
