Description

President Joseph Fielding Smith served as a general authority longer than anyone else in this dispensation. Ordained as an Apostle when he was only thirty,three years old, he continued in that office for almost sixty years. H was then sustained as the tenth president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter,day Saints, an office he held for two and a half years until his death in 1972.

In Joseph Fielding Smith: Gospel Scholar, Prophet of God, author Francis M. Gibbons provides an in,depth look at the long and interesting life of this complex man. Stern and unyielding in public, Joseph Fielding Smith attained the reputation of Church historian, gospel scholar, and forceful orator. But he was also warm, fun,loving, and compassionate, and the author provides a look at this gentler side of a powerful prophet: the man who loved to sing duets with his wife Jessie Evans, who was fascinated by high,performance military jets, and who once excused himself from general Priesthood meeting to attend a football game in which one of his sons was playing.
