I thought that I knew something about Joseph Smith until I started listening to these tapes. Dr. Madsen presents the life of Joseph Smith in an inspiring, entertaining, and informative way. You can listen to these lectures over and over again. I highly recommend them.

Truman Madsen is a treasure trove of information and testimony of the the Prophet's life. I wish I knew a quarter of what he knows. I am currently going through his first CD set, this second set on the life and teachings of Joseph Smith and the book Rough Stone Rolling by Richard Bushman. It has been an amazing journey to understand the life Joseph Smith led and his strengths and flaws. The Spirit truly testifies that these things are true!

I meant to buy the first CD collections, but I accidentally bought the wrong series. And that mistake happened to be a great mistake, I think I like these CD's better than all my other LDS CD's. Highly recommend these CD's to learn about Joseph Smith the Prophet.

Dr. Madsen does a wonderful job presenting the life of the Prophet Joseph Smith. Starts a little slow, but provides an incredible description of Joseph. By the end I felt like a scholor myself!

I first listened to these when I was just out of high school. They are absolutely amazing! What I learned from these lectures has served me throughout my mission and adult life. They are a must for anyone who has questions or wants to understand the origins of the LDS Church and the early Church leaders.

I have only listened to tape one, but I know the info is good. However it is a little deep and not nearly as engaging as his previous tapes on Joseph Smith. But with that said there is great meat in this, just takes a little concentration to get through it.
Edited 5/5/2013
I changed my rating as after listening to the entire series and realizing it is so wonderful. The first tape is a little deep but the others are all wonderfully easy to listen to and we are now on our second time.

We now have late church and since it is difficult to use the morning with just the two of us, my husband and I go to the park and listen to one topic each week. I look forward to every Sunday to have the special time to listen to the amazing things Truman Madsen teaches on the teachings of Joseph Smith. We have learned so many things about Joseph and his life and also about the doctrines of the church. It has helped us so much and increased our love and testimony of the gospel exponetially.

I enjoy the "The Prophet Joseph Smith" a bit better. There are great stories and interesting facts, but this set of CD's is not as informative or entertaining as his first.
