About the Book

The book "The Government of God" was written by John Taylor, a notable leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). This book provides a thorough examination of Taylor's and other early Mormon leaders' religious and political ideas. In "The Government of God," John Taylor expresses the distinct Mormon viewpoint on government and society. He highlights the concept of true governance being founded on heavenly foundations and led by religious authority. Taylor and the early Mormons envisioned a theocratic society in which civil law and religious philosophy were inextricably linked. Taylor's work explores the concept of the "Kingdom of God" and how it connects to church and state government. He argues for religious freedom and the separation of religion and state, as well as for a government that promotes moral ideals and principles. Taylor defends the LDS Church's principles and practices throughout the book, addressing conflicts and critiques experienced by Mormons at the time.

About Author

John Taylor

John Taylor (1808-1887) is an important figure in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), having written the seminal treatise "The Government of God." His life trajectory is significant, from humble origins in England to becoming a prominent figure in the early LDS Church. Taylor's commitment to the church in 1836, prompted by the influence of his wife Leonora Cannon, marked the beginning of his dedicated involvement with the LDS Church. His writing helps individuals connect with and understand one another. They're fantastic writers, whether they're writing about relationships, history, or fictional worlds. Taylor, as a senior church leader, developed strong relationships with luminaries like as Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. He was essential in the church's westward expansion, as evidenced by his leadership in bringing the Latter-day Saints to the Salt Lake Valley after Joseph Smith's assassination in 1844. Taylor's greatest work, "The Government of God," published in 1852, encapsulates his intellectual and theological accomplishments. He elaborates on the concept of a theocratic government in this work, proposing for a society in which religious values and civil law are inextricably entwined.
