Take your pick. (Or, add your own.)

    Wo, give me some context please!

    • WVS says:

      The interesting part is that except for 1 and 2 they each come from a different text tradition.

      • WVS says:

        Ooops. I lied, Only two text traditions. The odd part about that is that none of them are the standard one. That is interesting in itself.

        Dates: Australia — 1855, Presbyterians — 1903, Paulist — 1989, MLK Jr — 1999. The first two from one text tradition (no longer active) the second two from a new tradition. KFD lives, and it lives outside Mormonism!

    sources or excerpts would be nice, and fun to read.

    • WVS says:

      Australia = Mormon mission newspaper, Zions Watchman (it had about a 3 year run I think)
      Presbyterians= pamphlet published by the Sunday School Teachers assoc. (pretty rare.)
      Paulist Press = published “Selected Sermons and Writings of Joseph Smith”
      MLK Jr = KFD appears in “American Sermons: The Pilgrims to Martin Luther King Jr.”

      The first two used a pretty rare Nauvoo printing from 1845.
      The second two used a reconstruction (ok) by Donald Q. Cannon and Larry E. Dahl.

    Wasn’t this book edited by Jana Riess?
