A Landmark in Historical Writing. In this important new contribution to the early history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Dan Vogel introduces readers to groups and individuals who seem to have anticipated the kind of radically different religious and spiritual restoration Mormonism represented during the 1820s and 1830s. Indeed, the Mormon gospel attracted various religious primitivists, especially Seekers, who believe Joseph Smith's Church of Christ fulfilled nearly three hundred years of restorationist expectations. Moreover, Vogel suggest, following its formal organization in 1830, Mormonism's concept of authority during its formative years resembled that espoused by the Seekers. --- from book's back cover
