Garr provides historical and social context to Joseph Smith and the Restoration. He begins by discussing the Renaissance, and applies 1 Nephi 13:12 to Christopher Columbus. This is followed by a discussion of the Reformation and the colonization of America. He uses Nephi’s vision to show that the American colonists were led by God (1 Nephi 13:13, 16-19).
