Certainly, objective, this book takes an accurate look at the Mormon Prophet, Joseph Smith. The Mormons take him for a bonafide prophet of biblical proportions. The book makes no such conclusion, but certainly takes a good look at one of the most remarkable personalities of the 19th Century. Rising out of obscurity, his influence grows exponentially even today more than 150 years beyond his death.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By David Crowther on June 5, 2004
Format: Hardcover
The most recurring theme of Joseph Smith's life as found within Heidi Swinton's book was his endearing love for both his friends and his enemies. It is an easy read and flows well with many well placed pictures and paintings throughout. This book quotes from scholars from all walks of life and from various faiths and institutions, most of whom do not believe in the divine role of Joseph Smith, but all of whom joined their voices in recognizing the extraordinary role that Joseph played in the development of a uniquely American borne religion.

This book as well as the documentary has given me great insight on a story that is hard to tell. I highly recommend this book. The author clearly has a talent for writing, a great knowledge of history, and a love for Joseph Smith that is evident in the story.
