Overview

This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading. 

A Voice of Warning is a lively and passionate nineteenth-century argument for Mormonism. Written by Parley P. Pratt, one of the most colorful personalities in the early history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it was also Mormonism’s most important noncanonical book for more than half a century after its original publication in 1837. Pratt presented the case for Mormonism by an appeal to history, reason, and scores of passages from the Bible. Its animated, argumentative, and very often clever style explains Mormonism well and draws a line between it and conventional Christianity.

About the Author

Parley Parker Pratt was born in central New York State on April 12, 1807. In 1830 Pratt learned of the newly published Book of Mormon. Borrowing a copy, he read it virtually in one sitting, and, convinced that it was true, he embraced Joseph Smith’s message of the restoration of primitive Christianity. Pratt was baptized into the faith in September 1830. From that time on, he was one of the greatest advocates of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its teachings. In 1835 he was ordained a member of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles, and he remained in the church’s leadership until he was murdered in 1857 on his way home from a missionary journey.
