The Great Gathering (Standing in Holy Places, 1) by Chad DaybellVerily this is the word of the Lord, that the city New Jerusalem shall be built by the gathering of the saints . . . (D&C 84:4)
In the near future, Tad and Emma North and their children live in a United States that is growing increasingly wicked. The Norths and their extended family notice that many Latter-day Saints are being deceived by alluring temptations, and they wonder how much longer the Lord will allow American society to continue its downward spiral.
Then comes an invitation from Church leaders for the Saints to gather together. This invitation isn’t well-accepted—and even openly mocked—but those faithful Church members who trust in the Lord soon find themselves accomplishing monumental tasks. Join these humble yet heroic Saints as they embark on an unprecedented journey to build New Jerusalem.
The Great Gathering, the first novel in the Standing in Holy Places series, paints a vivid picture of exciting prophesied events that still must occur before the Second Coming. If you have an interest in what awaits the members of the LDS Church, this series should definitely be on your reading list!

Judaism is essentially a communal religion. It is considered a mitzvah, a blessing, to gather together for prayer in a synagogue which is also the place for study and many community and family events. The Jewish home is also a place where families and friends come together to celebrate Shabbat and holidays. In addition, many Jews go on group pilgrimages to Israel and its holy sites. Orthodox Jews call it a shul; Conservatives, a synagogue; and Reform Jews refer to it as a temple. Whatever the various Jewish movements call it, it is the epicenter of Jewish life, the place where Jews gather to pray, expressing their love for God and focus on their unity with him.
