Dedication, in The Joseph Smith Translation: The Restoration of Plain and Precious Truths, ed. Monte S. Nyman and Robert L. Millet (Provo, UT: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University, 1985), vi.

As a witness or the Lord Jesus Christ and Joseph Smith his Prophet, Elder Bruce R. McConkie was powerful and eloquent. He taught from the scriptures and took literally the Lord’s declaration that “this generation shall have my word through” Joseph Smith (D&C 5:10). He rejoiced in the light and divine understanding that is made available through the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible. He used the JST in his writings and did much to bring this revelatory work to the attention of Church members.

One of his last public discourses on the JST is included herein. We therefore affectionately dedicate this volume to his memory.
