Joseph Smith The Prophet Teacher Of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints
1927. In the spring of 1820, young Joseph Smith Jr. retired to the woods near his home and offered a simple prayer to our Father in Heaven. A series of remarkable spiritual experiences prepared him for his prophetic calling. He saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in vision and was chosen by God to restore the Church of Jesus Christ to the earth. Through revelation, he translated and published the Book of Mormon, organized The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and received revelations to guide the Church. By inspiration, he called Apostles and other Church leaders, defined doctrines, and taught the principles and ordinances that would lead to exaltation. This volume contains a discourse on Smith's role as Prophet-Teacher written by Roberts, an Elder of the Church. Contents: A Great Possibility; Historical Americans; What is a Prophet; Religious and Philosophical Beliefs of One Hundred Years Ago; The Prophet's Correction of Sectarian Errors; The Prophet's Philosophical Doctrines; The Prophet's Generalizations; and An American Prophet.
