After the murder of Joseph Smith, there was some confusion among the faithful of who was in charge. A group of saints headed by James Strang headed north and eventually settled at Beaver Island on Lake Michigan. James Strang ran the island as a personal kingdom even being dubbed "King James". This was his major work on Mormon theology. This book was not completed during Strang's lifetime.
