Overview

What exactly happened to make the Restoration necessary? Why do we need to understand the Apostasy before we can understand the Restoration? What did the Apostasy take away? What doctrines did it change? When-and why-was the priesthood taken from the earth? How do we know? In this fascinating account, author Kent P. Jackson highlights the events of the Apostasy, that transformation of Christianity that led to the collapse of the Savior's original Church. He explains, for example, how apostolic authority was taken from the earth with John, the last of the Savior's Twelve Apostles. And his demonstration of how the Apostasy was complete two centuries before the Council of Nicea shows that medieval Christianity was the result of the Apostasy and not its cause. By pointing out specifically what was lost in the Apostasy, Brother Jackson illuminates in a new way the truths that were returned to the earth through the Restoration. He details in sequence the transcendent events of the Restoration as the heavens are opened, God reveals himself anew, prophets and apostles are raised up, and the Lord once again establishes on the earth the pure doctrine and authority of the Church of Jesus Christ. From Apostasy to Restoration clearly explains the Restoration in the context of the Apostasy to show simply and concretely why The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is literally the kingdom of God, "the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth" (D&C 1:30). Whether you are a beginning student of Joseph Smith and the Restoration or someone well versed in Church history and doctrine, you will find in this book penetrating new insights. It is a classic addition to any Latter-day Saint library.
