He has written articles for Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought and Sunstone and has prepared numerous book reviews and columns for other publications. He has written historical introductions for two books on early Mormon scriptures and published limited editions of several books on Mormon studies.

Sandra Tanner, and her husband Jerald, both from fifth generation LDS families, co-founded the Utah Lighthouse Ministry in 1983. As teens in the 1950’s, they were challenged that the LDS faith had been radically changed over the years and its doctrines were contrary to the Bible. They were married in 1959, converted to Biblical Christianity, and continued researching LDS history and its doctrines. In 1963 they started Modern Microfilm Co. and began their long publishing career of reprints of old books relating to Mormonism in addition to their own research. Their most popular books have been The Changing World of Mormonism, published in 1980 by Moody Press, and Mormonism-Shadow or Reality?, self-published with various editions between 1963 and 1987 and now available in digital (PDF) format. Then in 1983 they set up their non-profit organization, through which they have continued their publishing and research, serving both the LDS and Christian communities through their bookstore, seminars, books, newsletters and web site www.UTLM.org.
Brent Ferrin Ashworth is an autograph collector and dealer of U.S. historical documents, in particular those related to Mormon history. He has assisted the Glenn Beck organization, the LDS Church History Library, Brigham Young University (BYU) Library Special Collections, the Utah Valley University (UVU) Library Special Collections, State History Division, including the Utah State Archives and other major institutions. He has recently assisted Beck with his first three history museums, starting with "Man in the Moon" at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, over the July 4th holiday in 2013, the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Kennedy Assassination in conjunction with the Mercury One Convention at the Omni Hotel in Dallas, Texas, in November 2013, and the "Miracles and Massacres" Museum held at Beck's Mercury One Studios in October 2014. In November 2013, Ashworth also appeared on Beck's special show on collecting, along with David Barton and Rick Harrison of Pawn Stars. Ashworth has donated many books and other items in his collection to the LDS Church and his items have been displayed at the Crandall Historical Printing Museum in Provo, Utah.
