About Restoration Studies
The founding volume of Restoration Studies was published in 1980 to honor the sesquicentennial of the Latter Day Saint movement, which was formally organized as the Church of Christ on April 6, 1830. The journal is now published as an annual by the John Whitmer Historical Association and the Community of Christ Seminary Press. The current edition is available on Amazon.com.
The first Restoration Studies Symposium was held in April of 2007. Co-sponsored by JWHA, the Community of Christ Seminary, and the Sunstone Educational Foundation as Sunstone Midwest, the symposium reaches across the Latter Day Saint movement to explore theology, cultural and religious studies.
