A Land of Promise and Prophecy: Elder A. Theodore Tuttle in South America, 1960–1965
The Religious Studies Center has just released A Land of Promise and Prophecy: Elder A. Theodore Tuttle in South America, 1960–1965 by Mark L. Grover. Even though this is not a biography of Elder Tuttle, this is the story of Elder A. Theodore Tuttle’s labors in South America during a pivotal and defining period in LDS history. Each mission in South America is discussed in relation to Elder Tuttle’s efforts and some of the prevalent issues he was faced with.
Elder Tuttle’s work was key to the evolution of the Church because it represented a significant adjustment in approach and direction, particularly from Church headquarters in Salt Lake City. This history focuses on the personalities, programs, and contributions of the mission presidents and their wives because the changes that occurred during this period were due in large part to these men and women as they helped strengthen the Church in South America.
