SKU: 866880 Joseph Smith and the Latter-day Saints
"Joseph Smith and The Latter-day Saints, by Richard Lloyd Dewey, is the most complete portrait so far of the Latter-day Saint prophet. Written for the everyday reader, it is a robust biography that deftly unfolds the life and times of the founder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Truly extraordinary and highly recommended, allowing the reader to come to know Joseph on an unparalleled personal level." —Midwest Book Review
Eleven years in the making, Joseph Smith and The Latter-day Saints captures Joseph's tumultuous life story, backing it up all the way with thousands of facts (many of which are not widely known even among members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).
Best-selling biographer Richard Lloyd Dewey (of Porter Rockwell: A Biography) quotes numerous journals and letters of neighbors from farms and villages who actually knew Joseph Smith.
Joseph Smith and The Latter-day Saints characterizes the fascinating relationships Joseph had with friends and enemies alike.
Dewey tackles the controversies head-on, with the pro- and anti- sources clearly identified. This meticulously researched volume covers the first 25 years of Joseph Smith's 38-year life. Fast-moving and well worth reading, even for those who don't like to read!
