From the publisher: The beauty of the Restoration is found in its simplicity. Following the death of Jesus Christ, the Church he established was rejected, the ordinances changed, and the authority lost.In the centuries that followed, efforts to restore the Primitive Gospel by study and thought, while making small inroads, were met by the iron fist of consolidated power. The result of this series of events is known as the Great Apostasy.In the long story of preparation for what transpired on that spring morning in 1820, when the heavens broke their long silence, there were a number of times where the theme was high, as individuals partnered with God.When the invention of printing began to spread the Bible among the people, a key outcome of the Reformation, Renaissance, and Enlightenment eras was to direct a few of God's children to America's shores.Events then led to the one with which we are most familiar: the creation of the United States.
