In chapter 40 of James E. Talmage "Jesus The Christ", Talmage goes into "extensive" detail in what appears to be a universal apostasy throughout the church. It appears to me that Talmage explains that this "apostasy" didn't occur all at once but occurred during a long interval of time. The exact date is not said but one can assume that it occurred between the death of the last apostle and 1820. So, for those who have read this chapter or even the entire book for that matter, what are your thoughts of his "evidence" and does Talmage bring up any important points? Is any of it true? Or just a bunch of hooplah.
