Description

"At a meeting of the LDS Quorum of the Twelve in 1860, one of the church's senior apostles complained that 'Brother Orson Pratt has withstood Joseph [Smith] and he has withstood Brother Brigham [Young] many times and he has done it tonight and it made my blood chill.'

"Whenever the quorum discussed Pratt's controversial sermons and writings, the conversation could become heated. As documented by Gary James Bergera in a surprisingly suspenseful account, Pratt's encounters with his brethren ultimately affected not only his seniority in the Quorum of the Twelve but also LDS doctrine, policy, and organizational structure." (From back cover.)
