One day I was just searching on YouTube for LDS religious talks and I happened upon one of Hyrum Andrus’ seminar talks. Some of his family members have been kind enough to upload 78 stake seminar talks that he gave in the Snowflake Utah stake in the late 80’s and early 90’s. After listening to just one I was hooked. I have listened to each of his talks multiple times and just love listening to them.
His seminars cover the last day prophesies, the building of Zion, and doctrines surrounding what the saints need to do to be born again, sanctified and become worthy to build and live in Zion. To me listening to Hyrum is like listening to a conference talk, except that he leaves the milk and gets into the meat of some deeper doctrines taught by the prophet Joseph Smith and our latter day scriptures.
You can listen to these seminar talks by going to this YouTube channel called Light and Truth. The best way to listen to his talks are in order. They are placed in order if you go to the playlist page of the YouTube channel. Hyrum has written many books as well which you can see on his official website HyrumAndrus.com.
Hyrum Andrus was raised in the Rexburg Idaho area. He joined the military during World War II and then later served an LDS mission. He has always had a love of church history. During his undergraduate education he taught missionary preparation at Rick’s college.
After getting his doctorate degree from an eastern university he returned to Rexburg Idaho where he was made the first Director of Religious Studies. He later moved to BYU and became a Professor of Church History and Doctrine. (See About Hyrum Andrus)
Hyrum is an expert on the prophet Joseph Smith having read everything Joseph Smith has ever written as well as everything the church has written by anyone who had met or knew the prophet Joseph Smith. He read much of the church historical documents even before the leadership of the church had read them. From this research he wrote the LDS book “They New The Prophet” shown in the image to the left.
On the YouTube channel there are 4 seminars entitled “The Doctrine and Covenants Seminar“, “Latter Day Prophecy Lecture Compilation“, “Pearl Of Great Price Seminar” and “Book Of Mormon Seminar“. If you go to his playlist page of the YouTube channel each of the talks from each seminar are put in order into playlists.
