Brand new softcover pamphlet! ; During most of his lifetime, Apostle John W. Taylor was known as the "Prophet of the Quorum" of the Twelve Apostles. Then, in 1905, he resigned from this Quorum, and six years later, in 1911, he was excommunicated from the LDS Church. How could this be? It was no new thing to hear that a leader of the Church had "gone astray," but the odd thing about Apostle Taylor's case is that he was cut off with no bitter or hard feelings whatsoever, on his part, about the Church, and to his dying day, five years after his excommunication, maintained a severe loyalty to the Church and the leaders. But even more so, maintained a supreme loyalty to the Fulness of the Gospel.
In 1965 President David O. McKay, who sat on the Quorum when John W. Taylor was excommunicated, approved a proxy re-baptism and re-conferral of Priesthood for Apostle John W. Taylor, with one of John's sons acting as proxy. So, at long last, he was brought back into fellowship with the Saints and the Church he so dearly loved.
The story behind this incident has been told on several occasions, as well as his life story, filled with faith, selfless acts of service, and valiant and bold testimony. But the story has been incomplete until now, with one of the two major components being left out.
Presented in this booklet are two vital components to understanding that situation back in the early 1900's. The first are the minutes of his Church trial, held by the Council of the Twelve Apostles over a period of about one month in early 1905. The second is a copy of the "1886 Revelation" to President John Taylor, Apostle John W. Taylors father. It is upon this that the whole trial seemed to have it's basis, at least in the mind of John W. Taylor.
These two important pieces of "hidden information" shed much light on why such an event even took place, and why Apostle Taylor would be willing to sacrifice his Church membership without the bitterness that ususally accompanies such actions.
Also included is a brief history of the life of John W. Taylor and the 1886 Revelation. ; The FIG Project Series; 5.5" x 8.5"; 34 pages
