Say the name “Warren Jeffs” out loud in a public place in Utah and you will get raised eyebrows. Latter-day Saints are very sensitive about having their religion tied to polygamous groups, which many ignorant bystanders have done over the years. Today, Jeffs—who is serving a life sentence behind federal prison bars in Texas—remains the official “prophet” of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which is still based in two bordering towns, Hildale, UT and Colorado City, AZ. Although he was characterized in his free days as being shy in public and even a recluse, Jeffs was known for ruling the world’s largest polygamous group with an iron fist. This lenghty review considers the series of “revelations” compiled by Warren Jeffs that he titled Jesus Christ, Message to All Nations. What “Jesus” writes may…or may not…surprise you.

Hinckley to the many positive media reports generated by the media, there has probably never been a time in history where Mormonism has looked so good from the perspective of the non-LDS public.
