BYU releases new book “Legacy of Sacrifice: Missionaries to Scandinavia, 1872-1894”

In honor of the sacrifice and commitment of 19th-century Scandinavian missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Brigham Young University Religious Studies Center recently released a new volume of biographies titled “Legacy of Sacrifice: Missionaries to Scandinavia, 1872-1894.”

Assembled by Susan Easton Black, Shauna C. Anderson and Ruth Ellen Maness, the book uses short biographies to identify and acknowledge the missionaries who dedicated themselves to bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ to Scandinavia.

The book can be used as a family history resource as well, as the volume contains specific, carefully researched information on each missionary. Other features include explanations of Scandinavian surnames, a pronunciation guide and photos.

The book also discusses the sacrifices made by Scandinavian converts to the Church of Jesus Christ, many of whom were disowned or gave up all their possessions.

For more information, contact Susan Easton Black at (801) 422-6418.
