In his years as a seminary and institute teacher, David Ridges has come across many curious students with a variety of different questions. Have you ever wondered: When temple-married parents divorce, to whom are the children sealed? Is Christ the Savior of only our world or other worlds as well? What is exaltation? Is adultery forgivable? What will life be like during the Millennium? If I get exaltation, do I have to live in polygamy? Pulling from the scriptures and teachings of the prophets, Brother Ridges provides clear, comforting answers to these questions and many others.
David J. Ridges taught for the Church Educational System for thirty-five years. He taught adult religion and Know Your Religion classes for BYU Continuing Education and spoke at BYU Campus Education Week for many years. He has served as a curriculum writer for Sunday School, seminary, and institute of religion manuals. His callings in the Church include Gospel Doctrine teacher, bishop, stake president, and patriarch. He and his wife, Janette, have served two full-time Church Educational System missions. They are the parents of six children and are enjoying a growing number of grandchildren. They reside in Springville, Utah.
