Messages of the First Presidency, Volume 3

Review

Contents

In compiling the official messages of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Dr. James R. Clark has provided a unique perspective for the study of Mormon history that will be of great value to layman and scholar alike.

This volume consists of 104 documents covering that transitional period of Church history from 1885 to 1901. The flow of events is easily followed by their chronological presentation; and an excellent fifty-seven-page index provides opportunity for topical study as well. The reader is well rewarded to consider the explanatory notes that accompany each message, which include references for further reading and quotations from significant primary sources, such as the journals of L. John Nuttall, John M. Whitaker, and Wilford Woodruff.
