"This Bookshelf Single is an excerpt from the book Opening the Heavens: Accounts of Divine Manifestations, 1820–1844. In this chapter, Steven C. Harper reproduces the richest historical documents associated with the dedication of the Kirtland Temple—the contemporary writings of eyewitnesses. They are published here together as a collective testimony of the fulfillment of divine promises to reward righteousness and sacrifice by the bestowal of spiritual gifts, ministering angels, and restoration of priesthood keys to endow the faithful with power."
