The compiler and author was a retired seminary teacher from California who saw a need to compile "...nearly every known revelation, vision, dream, doctrinal exposition and inspired declaration of the First Presidency and the Council of the Twelve not presently included in The Doctrine and Covenants." This self-published and self-distributed work was recalled after the LDS church made its displeasure known. On the jacket's blurb the author proclaims, "Selected Manifestations is a book that belongs alongside The Four Standard Works." Most copies were destroyed.
