Adventures of a Church Historian details how Leonard J. Arrington opened up archival resources and presided, for a time, over an unprecedented era of enlightenment as he and those working under his aegis produced path-breaking works of Mormon scholarship. Arrington was the first professional historian and the first noncentral authority to serve as church historian of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a position he held from 1972 to 1982. Arrington's church appointment came at a crucial point in LDS history, when the institution was being transformed from a regional church whose ecclesiastical hierarchy directly presided over its congregants into a modern, worldwide church with an elaborate bureaucracy. His description of conducting research in the LDS Church Archives in the days of Elder Joseph Fielding Smith and Brother A. Will Lund provides a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the LDS First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Riveting chapters on the actions of the controversial Historical Department reveal details of Arrington's release and replacement as the old system gave way to the new.

I have called my own book Adventures with God, and subtitled it Some of the Lord's Dealings with Francis Nigel Lee. Why? Because in it, I have tried to describe only those events I think disclose our gracious God's dealings with the unworthy sinner penning these lines. In enclosing several testimonials and references by my professors and employers and friends here within, I have done so only to try and show the great grace of God and the patient graciousness of those so testifying -- toward the deeply-flawed writer of this Introduction. Such kind testimonials have all been far more generous than this sinner could ever deserve.
