Product Description

With presentations from the foremost educators and scholars, these messages provide fresh, current, and faithful perspectives and will give helpful context for the study of Joseph Smith’s teachings in 2009. Each presenter is either on the Religious Education faculty at BYU or is part of the team preparing the landmark Joseph Smith Papers series.

Each of the lectures focuses on the years from 1830–1844, providing an overview of the major events in Church history for that year and then discussing a major doctrinal or historical topic tied to that time period. This exciting and thorough treatment will lift people’s understanding of the Prophet Joseph and the gospel to new heights.

Speakers in the series include Richard Neitzel Holzapfel, Richard E. Bennett, Kent P. Jackson, Robert J. Woodford, Grant Underwood, Alexander L. Baugh, J. Spencer Fluhman, Steven C. Harper, Ronald K. Esplin, William G. Hartley, Ronald O. Barney, Andrew H. Hedges, and Robert L. Millet.
