Abstract

A review of Prophetic Authority: Democratic Hierarchy and the Mormon Priesthood by Michael Hubbard MacKay. The reviewer states: "[a] quibble aside, MacKay has given us a well-researched and thought-provoking examination of authority both preceding and following the 1830 organization of the Church. For those who are interested in the history of how this authority originated and developed through Joseph Smith’s instrumentality, MacKay’s brief book is a valuable resource."
