How do you know that Joseph Smith is a prophet? Dynamic speaker Anthony Sweat offers ten reasons why Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God. He offers evidences such as the prophecies given about Joseph Smith, Joseph's own testimony and the testimony of his family and friends, the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, and more to demonstrate how we can know that Joseph Smith is a prophet. Mixing humor, scriptures, and powerful testimony, Brother Sweat masterfully engages audiences of all ages and provides the building blocks we need in order to gain a testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith. He concludes with an invitation for us to study the holy word of God—the Book or Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Joseph Smith Translation—and to find out for ourselves why Joseph Smith is indeed the Prophet of the Restoration.
