Abstract

This two-part series is an apostolic manifesto enunciating basic principles of the Restoration. Pratt addresses the “red man,” identifying the Book of Mormon as a record of their people, and admonishes them to respond to the gospel and promises that they will thereby feel joy. He refers to the Book of Mormon as “that book of books, that Ensign to the nations.” The first part begins the series.
