Brand new softcover book! ; In 1958, Elder Bruce R. McConkie of the First Quorum of the Seventy published a book entitled Mormon Doctrine. Some of the leading brethren of the Church were not pleased with what was written. After speaking with him about it, he was asked to either make some changes or to not print it again. He chose, for eight years, to leave it out of print. Then he began to reconsider, weighing the benefits of making the changes vs. Not getting the information out to the people. He decided to make the myriad of changes requested of him, having primarily to do with the Catholic Church. Other changes were made, with additions and deletions. Of all the time-honored works in Mormon literature, Mormon Doctrine ranks among the most well-known and authoritative references of all time. Most people are aware of the "sketchy past" of the book, but know little about the true story. Many questions remain about the book: What are the differences between the 1958 and 1966 editions? What led to the changes? Did the doctrine change, or just what was written? These and other questions are answered within the pages of this book. The gospel student will read what was originally written in the 1956 version, and then what was written in the 1966 version. A plethora of supporting documentation, including letters, quotes and a discourse, are also included in this book. In this book, you will read, side by side, the changes that were made between the first and second edition. This offers an insightful glimpse into the thinking of the 1960's, when the more liberal elements of society seemed to come into play in the Church, such as the negro and the Priesthood, the women's lib movement, etc. Extremely useful for the student of modern Mormon history! ; 6" x 9"; 187 pages; ChangesMD
