This book, which contains the proceedings of the 1991 dedication of the Joseph Smith Memorial building at Brigham Young University as well as twenty-three papers from the 1992 Joseph Smith Symposium, is a fitting tribute to the mighty prophet and seer who stands as the head of the dispensation of the fullness of times. The variety and scope of the material presented here are indicative of the powerful examples of Christian living and sacrifice and the wealth of gospel understanding that the Prophet left to the world.
