Stephen D. Ricks, Donald W. Parry, and Andrew H. Hedges, Editors. Provo, Utah: Foundation for Ancient Research & Mormon Studies (FARMS), 2000, 6.5×9″ hardbound, 622 pages. ISBN: 0934893454

Richard Lloyd Anderson–known as a devoted teacher, careful writer, and perfect gentleman–has had a great impact on the study of LDS Church history. In this volume, friends and colleagues have written 18 scholarly studies in his honor. Several of these pages were presented on 8 March 1997 at a conference titled “Pioneeers of the Restoration”

In his introduction to this volume, Andrew H. Hedges reminds us of Anderson’s notable contribution to the study of LDS Church History: “Trained as both a historian and lawyer, the cautious, probing, analytical approach he brought to the field more than forty years ago revoloutionized the way scholars have researched and written about Joseph Smith and the church he restored. Taking nothing for granted, Anderson reexamined the sources we thought we all knew, asked questions we never considered, and mined archives we never knew existed. The result was nothing short of spectacular, as the publications resulting from these efforts have largely rewritten our understanding of many of the seminal experiences of the early church and her founding prophet.
