New Era

January 2005

Volume 35, Number 1

This year we’ll be celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Prophet Joseph Smith who, as “the Prophet and Seer of the Lord, has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it” (D&C 135:3).

The great and marvelous work he began—the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ—started with a sincere prayer at age 14 in a grove of trees.
