This in view of efforts to account for the Prophet of the New Dispensation and what are regarded as his "more or less abnormal performances," in bringing into existence the Book of Mormon, and founding the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The study of his ancestry becomes important, since no pains are spared in making systematic pathological studies of that ancestry in the hope of finding some abnormalities that would justify the theory that the Prophet's revelations were but hallucinations, the product of a mind diseased.
The unexpected chance that this first volume of A History of the Church needs to be re-set before it can be reprinted has given me the very welcome opportunity of revising the text, of correcting errors of fact, and of adding considerably to the bibliographical notes. The only notable addition to the text is the short section on Mani and his religious system as the study of the ChesterBeattie papyri has now made this known. The long history is divided on lines that are, I venture to think, truer to fact than the more usual divisions. This volume deals with The Church and the World in which the Church was Founded-- that world which was politically Roman and culturally Hellenic; and it takes the story as far as the breakdown of that culture in the West and its transformation, in the East, into the new Byzantinism. It deals with the fortunes of the Church in that medieval world built up on the debris of the Romano-Hellenic culture in the West; and it ends at the time when that new culture is beginning to turn against its chief architect -- the close of the thirteenth century.

It has been one year since the volume Saints: The Standard of Truth came out in print and in electronic format. I remember waking up on the morning of September 4th, and finding the volume in the Gospel Library App on my smartphone. Although I was given a pre-publication copy a couple of weeks earlier, it was now available to everyone. I finished reading it by the end of September and this review is long overdue. For what it matters now, I too wish to share my impressions on this important publication: a true milestone in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. First of all, my hat off to the Church History Department and all the historians, writers, and editors that took part in the production of this labor-intensive volume. From the description of it, I was unsure how learning more about the life of Joseph Smith and the early years of the Church was going to impact the lives of the members in this generation differently than what we already had and knew.
