Millennium, Grant Underwood, New Testament studies, The Millenarian World of Early Mormonism


What did early Church members think about the end of the world and the ushering in of the Millennium? In The Millenarian World of Early Mormonism (University of Illinois Press), Grant Underwood examines how profoundly influenced the Church was by the view of an imminent second coming of Christ and millennial transformation of the earth. What makes this book of interest to FARMS readers is its detailed exploration of early Latter-day Saint understandings of the Bible and the Book of Mormon.
