"One of Joseph Musser's main contributions to the development of the fundamentalist movement was 'Truth,' the monthly magazine which he began editing in June 1935. In its pages during that crucial first decade, Musser compiled many of the arguments still promoted by fundamentalists today. Topics included plural marriage, the Woodruff Manifesto, the existence of a priesthood organization outside the LDS Church, Polygamy and the Book of Mormon, the Law of Consecration, the Temple, the Adam-God theory, the 'One Mighty and Strong,' the gathering of Israel, missionary work without purse or scrip, and others." - p.301 'Mormon Polygamy and Mormon Fundamentalism.'

Joseph Musser (1872-1954) was an early fundamentalist leader and considered a Prophet by many, and was the leader of the Short Creek group during the government raids. Upon his death this group split to form the A.U.B. and the FLDS groups. Rare.
