Held in conjunction with the bicentennial of Joseph Smith's birth, this year's Sperry Symposium centers on the contributions of the Prophet in restoring the gospel of Jesus Christ, restoring scripture, and restoring true doctrine to the earth in the latter days. This volume addresses our enlarged understanding of such concepts as premortal life, the new and everlasting covenant of marriage, the salvation of little children, and temple service. Other topics include the Joseph Smith Translation, the calling of the Twelve and the Seventy in 1835, and the ministry of angelic messengers to the Prophet. This book will bring the reader renewed appreciation for the role and impact of the Prophet Joseph.
