Product Description

The concept of a universal apostasy--a falling away from the truth of Christ's Church as he established it--is fundamental to the faith of Latter-day Saints. Had an institutional apostasy not occurred, there would be no need for a Restoration or for the Prophet Joseph Smith. In a careful and compelling manner, Elder Alexander B. Morrison establishes the occurrence of the great apostasy, identifying key factors that show readers why and how it happened. He also bears witness that, beginning with the appearance of the Father and the Son to Joseph Smith, the gospel was restored and Christ's Church was reestablished on the earth, never again to be taken away.
