Out of Obscurity: The Church in the Twentieth Century

Reviewer Bruce A. Van Orden

At century's end, Brigham Young University's College of Religious Education presents "a commemorative volume in remembrance of the century." Out of Obscurity: The Church in the Twentieth Century includes twenty-six papers from the twenty-ninth annual Sidney B. Sperry Symposium.

In his keynote address, "May the Kingdom of God Go Forth," Elder Marlin K. Jensen, a President of the Seventy, lauds the Church's devotion to record keeping:

Perhaps no other religion from its earliest beginnings has enjoyed a greater abundance of both primary and secondary sources from which to analyze and reconstruct its past. If, as some of our critics allege, the Prophet Joseph Smith committed a fraud on the world, he certainly made no effort personally, and left no instructions to his followers, to conceal the evidence!
