The introduction outlines the paradoxes in LDS conceptions of the past by introducing the narrative construction of a boundary between apostasy and restoration, a binary categorization that has defined Mormonism as set apart from other religious traditions. It introduces the collaborative project that generated this volume and summarizes the contributors’ assumptions about the narrative and ethical dimensions of historical representations and their method of dialectical and charitable conversation with the past.
