In unprecedented detail, this book explores the two toxic flaws that were baked into the original Constitution of 1789—flaws which compelled Joseph Smith, Jr. to run for President in 1844.

Standing before the highest leaders of the land, Joseph prophetically warned of the "vexing" tribulations that would visit this nation if they did not make the provisions required to correct these damnable flaws. Inasmuch as Joseph the Prophet was assassinated in the attempt, another "humble instrument in the hands of God" was raised up to complete the work that Joseph would have corrected had he been elected and allowed to tarry. That man was Abraham Lincoln.

Foreword written by bestselling author Timothy Ballard.
