We feel a deep obligation to not only bring stories of hope to the world, but to promote films with high standards of craftsmanship reflective of a belief in a divine and benevolent creator.

My 16yo daughter and I have watched this several times. It give us some wonderful daddy-daughter time, but also pours the Spirit all over us while we sit there and watch this wonderfully spiritual presentation of Joseph Smith. At a time when kids seem to be pulling away, my daughter actually requests watching this one (and his series on the Saviour). If you don't have this in your collection, I believe you are missing something VERY valuable!
Doctrines of the restoration

Bro. Madsen had a PhD in Philosophy of Religion. He was wonderful as a teacher in the 1960's at BYU. I appreciate so much his presentation of the doctrines of the restored gospel and how they developed through Joseph's life. An absolutely wonderful collection. I have watched it several times.
Will deepen your testimony of Joseph Smith

This series will increase your knowledge, make the time line of Church history more clear, and deepen your testimony of Joseph Smith. Brother Truman's delivery, from no script, will bring to life the events that happened in the locations of where they happened. It is like a tour of the Church history sites on DVD. Many thanks to Brother and Sister Madsen for the hours spent on this production. One of the finest, if not the finest, presentations on Joseph Smith.

This set is so wonderful - Truman Madsen can just put you right there with Joseph and go all the way with him. I find this spiritually uplifting and in these days, it's what I look for.

This is a wonderfully, inspiring documentary on the life of the Prophet Joseph Smith and the Restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ. If you have ever heard Truman's lectures on the Prophet Joseph Smith, you know the great knowledge and love he has for the Prophet. I'm looking forward to sharing these with my family.
