From the Preface- "The writer first developed interested in this subject in 1959 when Dr. Russell R. Rich gave an assignment in his class, 'Historical Development of L.D.S. Doctrine,' to write a term paper on an offshoot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Having heard for the first time during that summer of the LeBarons and their 'Church of the Firstborn of the Fulness of the Times,' and being curious to know more about it, the author volunteered to write a paper on that group. At the end of the term each member of the class duplicated his paper and exchanged it with the other class members. Since the writer's was a rather large paper, it was suggested by several that it be expanded into a thesis."
