Praise

“Remarkable. . . . A tale that’s as colorful, suspenseful and unlikely as any in American history…Bushman earns a place for his biography on the very short shelf reserved for books on Mormonism with appeal to initiates and outsiders, too.”—The New York Times Book Review“A fascinating definitive biography. . . . Stirs deeper questions about American religious convictions and how they shape lives and culture.” —The Christian Science Monitor“An exhaustively researched and beautifully written biography of Mormonism’s enigmatic founder.”—Christianity Today"Fascinating. . . .Bushman captures all the harrowing events of Smith’s short life, rife with converts and cabals, while meticulously dissecting the revelations that continue to haunt the Smith story." —The Providence Journal“Well-researched and lucidly written. . . . An excellent source for learning about the Mormon faith.” —The St. Louis Post-Dispatch
