Of Pratt’s many roles, he considered his apostleship paramount. He clearly felt an affinity with Paul. His Autobiography was a self-conscious construction; his late sermons provide a different window on the man Parley Pratt. He never fully reconciled his life’s many tensions: liberty and religious persecution, militancy and meekness, millennialism and pragmatism, spiritual richness and relentless poverty, and finally, honor killing and martyrdom. His legacy was unambiguous: Paul-like in his elaboration and systematizing of Mormon doctrine, through Voice of Warning and Key to Science of Theology. Ultimately, he was more motivated by his loyalty and love than his sense of duty.
