All That Was Promised: The St. George Temple and the Unfolding of the Restoration

Reviewer Bruce C. Hafen

This book reflects the fortunate confluence of several factors: first, Blaine Yorgason's considerable talents as a storyteller combined with the academic skills of seasoned historians Douglas Alder and Richard Schmutz; second, the inclusion of previously unpublished journal accounts from colorful and credible participants who helped build the St. George Temple; and third, the previously little-noticed historical placement of this temple, not merely as a local story, but in its concluding role as the third temple required to complete the full restoration of temple ordinances--Kirtland, Nauvoo, and St. George.
