It is appropriate for us Latter-day Saints to desire spiritual experiences, if we want them for the right reasons. The Prophet Joseph Smith demonstrated this when, at the dedication of the Kirtland Temple, he prayed: "let thy house be filled with a mighty rushing wind, with thy glory." Joseph specifically asked for a heavenly experience. Of course, his faith had waxed strong in the Lord; but then again, shouldn't ours? So writes Andrew S. Weeks in Spiritual Temples: Heavenly Experiences in the Houses of God, a thought-provoking, inspiring book that is also studiously and reverently researched. Weeks writes about the history of temple worship and its restoration in the latter-days, which sparked a stream of heavenly manifestations given to prophets and other faithful saints, fulfilling the Lord's words that temples are "consecrated" for "obtaining revelations." Present-day temple building, the future of temple work, and worthiness are also discussed. "I will appear unto my servants, and speak unto them with mine own voice," the Lord promised, "if my people will keep my commandments, and do not pollute this holy house." Spiritual Temples supports the premise that, whether through inspiration or direct manifestation, heavenly experiences are available to temple visitors today.

Table in the Wilderness answers questions, reduces prejudice, explains tenets, promotes interest in the Church and missionary work, and affirms that L.D.S. are Christians. It describes the absolutely unique and spiritual magnetism of This Place.
