Deserves Six Stars!

These DVD series are an absolute treat for Latter-day Saints. I think they should be touted, promoted, made known to every Latter-day Saint who passes over the entry threshold of a Deseret Book store. Glenn Rawson is a consummate host. His knowledgeable, bright history commentary is forever interesting, informed, insightful, outstanding. And if I might say, he lights up the screen with his red-headed star power and easy smile. His whole demeanor is delightful. The constant commentary from our faithful LDS scholars is priceless. Production values just excellent. These History of the Saints DVD sets are worth every cent of the forty smackers purchase price.

I think Deseret Book could do a better job featuring or promoting some of the best things — the things that matter more. The Uintah United video DVD would've been one. These stunning History of the Saints DVD sets are another.

I purchased this as a gift for my dad. He loves it. Wish that season 2 were also available on CD!
