Abstract

The following historical matter written by the Prophet Joseph Smith himself is taken by permission of President Joseph F. Smith from the opening chapters of the History of the Church, Volume I. The explanatory notes and comments are by Elder B. H. Roberts, compiler of the History of the Church. It is republished here, with a brief analysis following each chapter, with a view to facilitating a proper understanding of the Book of Mormon.

The general pedagogic aim is two-fold; first, to create in the hearts of the students a profound sense of admiration, reverence, and love for the Prophet Joseph Smith; and second, to create a desire to know what the Book of Mormon contains.
