I loved this book - so many great insights about the prophet Joseph Smith. ( )
  quinton.baran | Mar 29, 2021 |
This is one of our favorite books about Joseph Smith. It portrays the majesty of his life, the power of his vision, and the depth of his caring about others. It also shows how he reacted to trials and adversity. We were reminded of this book and a BYU Idaho Education Week Program and were lucky to get the last copy on the shelves in the BYU-Idaho Bookstore, that summer of 2005.
