A Bibliographic Source Lost Apostles: Of the twelve men initially selected as apostles in , nine would eventually be pruned from the vineyard themselves, to varying degrees. Seven were excommunicated, one of whom was reinstated to his position in the Twelve. Of the other six, the subjects of this book, none returned to the apostleship and four never came back to the Church at all. Those who left faded into obscurity except for when they are occasionally still mentioned in sermons as cautionary tales. But two of them made their marks in other areas of society, John Boynton becoming a successful dentist, a popular lecturer, geologist, and inventor with dozens of important patents to his name, while Lyman Johnson became a prominent attorney and business owner.
Even though Luke Johnson, Thomas B. Marsh, William McLellin, and William Smith became religious wanderers and tried unsuccessfully to adjust to life outside of the Church, their experiences were interesting and comprise valuable case studies in belief and disaffection.

More than 4, people were baptized. During the early days, the Hawaiian mission seemed to regularly alternate between ill-fated and inspired. The Journals of George Q.

The Polygamous Wives Writing Club: Oxford University Press, The Church of Latter-day Saints renounced the practice of plural marriage in In the mid to late nineteenth century, however—the heyday of Mormon polygamy—an average of three out of every ten Mormon women became polygamous wives. Paula Kelly Harline delves deep into the diaries and autobiographies of twenty-nine such women, opening a rare window into the lives they led and revealing their views of and experiences with polygamy, including their well-founded belief that their domestic contributions would help to build a foundation for generations of future Mormons.
Following two or three women simultaneously and integrating their own words within a lively narrative, Harline focuses on the detail of their emotional and domestic lives over time, painting an incredibly candid and realistic picture of 19th Century polygamy. Mormon Historical Consciousness and the Concept of Apostasy ed. Latter-day Saints have a paradoxical relationship to the past; even as they invest their own history with sacred meaning, celebrating the restoration of ancient truths and the fulfillment of biblical prophecies, they repudiate the eighteen centuries of Christianity that preceded the founding of their church as apostate distortions of the truth.
Since the early days of Mormonism, Latter-day Saints have used the paradigm of apostasy and restoration in their narratives about the origin of their church.

In , the prophet Wilford Woodruff received a revelation regarding generational family sealings that would resolve unsettled issues and establish modern temple worship. His experiences in Kirtland and Nauvoo prepared him to receive additional revelations regarding temple worship. Through the years he continued the pattern of seeking revelation in order to clarify rites and effect changes based on practical experience.
How his most seismic revelation—the doctrine of polygamy—created a rift among his people; how that schism turned to violence; and how, ultimately, Smith could not escape the consequences of his ambition and pride.
