Elder Jeffrey R Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles spoke to students at Harvard Law School on 21 March 2012, during the annual Mormonism 101 series sponsored by the school's Latter-day Saint Student Association (LDSSA). Watch the video of the address here.
From Harvard's historic Langdell Hall, Elder Holland spoke regarding the Church's teachings. “What brings me to you today is not a message of reformation but of restoration,” he said, “the restoration of that church Christ established by His hand in the meridian of time and which He has reestablished by His hand in this present time.”
Elder Holland further explained the centrality of Christ to Church doctrine and the important distinctions between the teachings of other Christian doctrines and those of the LDS Church.
He also spoke about the recent media attention the Church has received. "I confess I did not believe I would live to see the day that taxi cabs in Times Square would be scurrying about with 'taxi toppers' saying, 'See the Book of Mormon,'" he said. "Of course our quick rejoinder has been, 'Now you have seen the show, read the book.'"
He is not the first Apostle to speak at the Mormonism 101 series. Other prominent members of the Church, including Elder Dallin H. Oaks and Thomas B. Griffiths, a federal circuit judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, have participated.
