The day is fast approaching when the compilation of the many testimonies manifest in the various branches of His church will be woven together into a beautiful tapestry revealing the effort to which the Holy Spirit has gone, that God might have a happy, and united people. Yet today, the Restored Church is fractured.

In this book, author Patrick McKay uses figurative language, common testimony, and prophetic expressions to illustrate the personal conviction, great spiritual truths, and lofty ideals of our epic latter-day theme.

Each branch of the Restored Church has a rich legacy of testimony that has been created, preserved, and transmitted to them from the initial days of the Restoration, reminding us all of our spiritual birthright as inheritors of the angel message. McKay has seen the destiny of the Saints of the Restoration, and has written to set them free, offering fresh insights and optimism to enliven the reader to press forward toward Zion's borderline.

Healing the Breach is a thoughtful look at how the Holy Spirit has been manifest in empirical ways in the various major branches of the Restored Gospel (e.g., The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, RLDS/Community of Christ, Church of Jesus Christ [Bickertonite], Church of Christ--Temple Lot, and the Restoration Branches). It tells stories of how individuals in the various branches have experienced miracles; and chronicles the love and witness millions have for the Book of Mormon. The author's plea is that those who read might participate in healing the divide that exists between the various factions of Restored Christianity. The text is inclusive, interesting, and worth reading. Patrick has a gift for analogies, and finds numerous ways to help his readers to sense the fracture that exists--and which must be healed. I recommend this book to any whose tradition ties them to the Restored Gospel and the Book of Mormon; but also to those who are unaffiliated with the Restoration, but who would be interested in reading a bit more about the miracles had by those who believe in the Book of Mormon.
