Richmond: "This book is a product of the most intense spiritual manifestations among the Shakers, and its contents were believed to be a new revelation of the will of God. Later, when the Ministry decided that it did not represent a true revelation, the book was withdrawn from circulation. Its affinity to the Book of Mormon (1830) has often been noticed."
