NIBLEY ON CHANGE, UTOPIANS, AND SACRED VESTMENTS
Three new papers are added at this time to our Nibley Archive. The first, a speech entitled "Change Out of Control," is about the inevitable and constant role of change in the history of mankind and in the progress of the individual soul. "The Gospel invites us to move toward the unknown," especially through "individual freedom to repent and go the other way." In "The Utopians," Dr. Nibley discusses twelve attributes shared by the secular and spiritual utopians. Together with "Breakthroughs I Would Like to See" (N-BRA), these talks form a provocative trilogy.
In addition, the transcribed version of Professor Nibley's 1975 address, "Sacred Vestments," has now been revised and annotated. The use and significance of garments, robes and priestly vestments, particularly as reflected in ancient texts, is discussed here in vivid detail.
