This is the first book I've read all the way through on Joseph Smith. It's a book you would want to read multiple times. In Dr. Madsen's lectures he presents a very interesting side of Joseph that we don't often talk about. I loved his stories about Joseph's humor, his amazing intelligence and love for his brethren. After reading this you won't look at Joseph Smith the same again. Good read.
This CD is the lectures given at the BYU Education week in 1978 and that were issued on 4 cassettes in the 80's.
