Outstanding LDS scholars and educators discuss John Taylor’s missionary labors in Europe and his efforts as an emigration agent, John Taylor as a family man, as well as John Taylor as a witness to the martyrdom and as a teacher of the Atonement. The Prophet Joseph Smith said, “Elder Taylor, you have received the Holy Spirit, and if you heed promptings of the same, it will become within you a Fountain of Continuous Revelation from God. ” As we study John Taylor’s words in this volume, they can become a continuous fount of revelation for us. Published by the Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, in cooperation with Deseret Book Company.
The road from being an obscure child born in England to a “champion of liberty” in America began with John Taylor’s baptism into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. From that time until his death, John Taylor was an unflinching and powerful advocate of the truths that had come into his life. His motto became “The kingdom of God or nothing. ”
When John Taylor became the leader of the Church, his administration was limited by exile, due to federal prosecution of polygamy. Forced to move from hideout to hideout, he was rarely in a safe enough position to meet with his counselors or to be among general Church membership.
This book is a compilation of presentations from the 2009 annual BYU Church History Symposium in 2009. The purpose of this book is to remember the great legacy of John Taylor and the contributions he made to the Church during his lifetime. ; Brigham Young University Church History Symposium Series; 6.25" x 9.25"; 397 pages
