Product Description

Anyone interested in Joseph Smith will be fascinated by Remembering Joseph, the most complete collection ever of stories from the Prophet's family, friends, acquaintances — even his enemies. Organized topically, the stories treat a wide variety of subjects: the character of Joseph Smith, the doctrines he taught, the gifts of the Spirit he enjoyed, important events in his life, and many others. A great number of these stories have not previously been published. A great resource on the Prophet's life, from the perspective of those who saw him live it.

Great book and wonderful information from first hand sources about Joseph Smith
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

This is a great book and a great read. It is a conglomeration of experiences of many people who interacted with Joseph Smith personally, including members of the early LDS church, people who were never members of the LDS church, those who left the LDS church, Joseph's family members (whom some were and some weren't members of the LDS church), employers, coworkers, and acquaintances. It contains wonderful personal experiences gleaned from journals and interviews. I found it to be a tremendous compilation of dear experiences that has really helped Joseph Smith come alive for me personally and has strengthened my testimony of him as the prophet of the dispensation of the fullness of times and a good, yet imperfect man. While other works on Joseph may be more academically comprehensive, this book is a great compilation of personal experience with him and is very accessible to all readers who find autobiographical information fascinating. This book contains little commentary from the compiling author and mostly allows the words of the selected individuals to speak for themselves. I highly recommend this book, especially for anyone wanting to know more about Joseph Smith, the Prophet, from those who knew him personally.

Special Treasury of Joseph Smith Stories
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

Mark McConkie has created a vast treasury of intimate views of the Prophet Joseph Smith. The sheer volume of material handled in the book and in the bonus CD is incredible. While some accounts included in this book have been previously published, there are so many that have never been published before or are not easily accessible at this time. This is truly a treasured volume for anyone interested in the Prophet Joseph Smith. Through this book one can come to know 'Brother Joseph' better than they have before. Three cheers and congratulations to Mark McConkie for adding such a valuable treasure trove at our finger tips. This book is a necessity for any serious Latter-day Saint's library.
