9781629722368: Precept Upon Precept: Joseph Smith and the Restoration of Doctrine

How could a man who delivered such a comprehensive system of doctrine, who laid such a profound theological foundation, be anything other than a prophet of God? Most histories and biographies don't discuss doctrine, or they mention doctrines of revelations only briefly. Unlike any other treatment of Joseph Smith, this book presents the Prophet's life in the context of what he was teaching doctrinally. Precept upon Precept explores the chronological development of Restoration doctrines, providing a better understanding in the context of what was happening in the life of the Prophet and in the Church when these doctrines were revealed and taught. In the end, this book provides another witness of Joseph Smith's prophetic status, as demonstrated by the fruits of his life.
