Parley P. Pratt's seminal 1837 volume a Voice of Warning and Instruction to All People (for a long time the most read Mormon publication apart from the Book of Mormon itself) attempts, and succeeds, at being the very first clear, concise, and organized presentation of the Context and Story of Mormonism. It it truly the first presentation of a 'Gospel Principles' book in the Church. What Pratt does that is unique is to correlate and organize the message into one of simple logic - all the while closely obeying president Joseph Smith's charge to the Twelve and their missionary efforts to only speak of the First principles of the Gospel as it has been revealed. The 1837 Missionary Message of Parley P. Pratt as presented in A Voice of Warning can be outlined like this: Authenticity and necessity of Prophecy o Presentation that Prophets accurately foretold what we now know as History o Presentation of authoritative Prophetic accounts of the Future, leading up to the reign of the Kingdom of God The Kingdom of God o What the Kingdom is o How to identify the Kingdom o How to become part of the Kingdom The Book of Mormon o Witness of the reality of the renewed covenant of the Kingdom today (Proclamation and Warning to All) The Restitution of All Things o Resurrection of the Body o Restoration of the Earth to a pure form o Two New Jerusalems: Jerusalem and Zion The Dealings of God with All Nations o All who hear the message by authorized messengers are accountable. o All who live in an age where the message is not authorized to be sent are not accountable. Chart contrasting the "Doctrine of Christ" with a somewhat humorous presentation of the "Popular Doctrines of the 19th Century"
