Foundations of the Restoration: Fulfillment of the Covenant Purposes

Reviewer Richard Neitzel Holzapfel,

This volume is a collection of fifteen papers presented at the forty-fifth annual Sidney B. Sperry Symposium, held in October 2016. The title and subject matter of the symposium were drawn from the LDS Institute course titled "Foundations of the Restoration," which explores the events surrounding the founding of the Church and early Mormonism. The editors, Craig James Ostler, Michael Hubbard MacKay, and Barbara Morgan Gardner, are all members of BYU's Church History and Doctrine Department.

Foundations of the Restoration covers a variety of topics, including the Sabbath day, eternal marriage, conceptions of Zion, consecration, Hyrum Smith's Liberty Jail letters,William W. Phelps's contributions to understanding Church history, the First Vision, the Articles of Faith, Joseph Smith's translation of the Bible, the evaluation of doctrine, the development of LDS temples and temple ordinances, and the sustaining of Church leaders as seers, revelators, and prophets.
