Product Description

The Autobiography of Andrew Jenson, first published in 1938 by the Deseret News Press in Salt Lake City, Utah, tells the personal story of a Danish Mormon convert who eventually served as Assistant Church Historian of the LDS Church over forty years. The author mined his voluminous personal journals and assembled Church records to tell the story of the Restoration and the Church since the 1850s, when he arrived in Utah as a European immigrant. Through Jenson's synthesized research, writing, and reflections, readers come away with deeper appreciation for the men and women whose lives constitute Mormon history. Jenson told their stories together with his life experiences, creating an important window into the Mormon past.
