Part 3: Gathering and Revelation in Kirtland Part 4: The Kirtland Temple The Kirtland period witnessed the gathering of converts from far and near. Under Joseph s charismatic guidance they became a consecrated community. A veritable flood of revelations brought doctrinal clarification, and lead to the school of the prophets, the outlines of organizational and sacramental leadership, and the merging of secular and sacred in daily life.

Review:

" I have enjoyed the tremendous privilege of traveling in a tour group with Truman Madsen as our guide, and can say only that I wish every person in the Church could have that experience. He is so knowledgeable, so personable, and so fascinating that you just want to follow him around and soak in everything he has to say. This DVD series brings a visual element to the remarkable stories and doctrinal insights so characteristic of his teaching style that it is literally like traveling with Truman Madsen to the sites of the Prophet's work. The events of the Restoration leap to life in their real-life settings." --Sheri Dew
