That Promised Day: The Coming Forth of the LDS Scriptures
´è_For my soul delighteth in the scriptures, and my heart pondereth them,and writeth them for the learning and the profit of my children´è_ (2 Ne.4:15).
You will be fascinated by this compelling story of the miraculous events that led to the creation and publication of the modern version of the complete standard works of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It chronicles the monumental project initiated in 1972 to publish an LDS edition of the King James Bible and the subsequent revisions of other Church scriptures to include cross referencing footnotes and many other beneficial study aids. This documentary film shows how the hand of the Lord was evident throughout the process as the pains taking work was performed by some of the greatest scholars of this dispensation under the direction of prophets, seers, and revelators. In President Thomas S. Monson´è_s observations included in the film, he states, ´è_More people have studied the scriptures, more people have carried the scriptures, and more people have been taught the scriptures and understand the scriptures as a result of the work we´è_re talking about.
´è_This program will bring greater appreciation for the inspired efforts that have helped Latter-day Saints better understand God´è_s words through cross-referencing footnotes that link all of the standard works, the addition of the Joseph Smith Translation, and other improved study tools such as maps, chapter headings, and topical guides. What remains for us is to make use of these sacred resources to enhance our understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ and to solidify our testimonies, ´è_that every man might speak in the name of God, the Lord. ´è_´è_

Gifted musician Catherine Clayton was born into a life of wealth and privilege. Following the death of her father, she makes a bold decision she hopes would make him proud: she’s using the family money to establish a music school and offer free lessons to the underprivileged. A providential suggestion from an old college friend leads Catherine to select Riley, New York, as the perfect location for her new school. Hit hard by the economic downturn, Riley personifies economic hardship: peeling paint, overgrown landscapes, and damaged buildings. But the damage runs much deeper than Catherine first realizes. Two years ago, Riley was rocked by weeks of vandalism followed by the brutal murder of beautiful elementary school secretary Olivia Perry. Everyone in town loved Olivia-but especially the two men with whom she was caught in a love triangle. Though the murder remains unsolved, Catherine receives ominous warnings that one of these men, Adam Becket, is responsible for the girl’s death. Unimpressed by the lack of evidence against him, Catherine is drawn to the shy but endearing Adam. Could he really have been involved in Olivia’s murder?

The death threats splashed on the walls prove that the killer is back-and this time, it’s Catherine who wonders if she’s come to the wrong place at the wrong time.
