Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Richard Lyman Bushman

Narrated By: James Anderson Foster

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: January 2018

Duration: 28 hours 56 minutes

Summary:

Founder of the largest indigenous Christian church in American history, Joseph Smith published the 584-page Book of Mormon when he was twenty-three and went on to organize a church, found cities, and attract thousands of followers before his violent death at age thirty-eight. Richard Bushman, an esteemed cultural historian and a practicing Mormon, moves beyond the popular stereotype of Smith as a colorful fraud to explore his personality, his relationships with others, and how he received revelations. An arresting narrative of the birth of the Mormon Church, Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling also brilliantly evaluates the prophet's bold contributions to Christian theology and his cultural place in the modern world.

    I learned it all.

    It was a very interesting book but I would have preferred less “scripture” and just give us the history. I found myself drifting off when I got the same version of repetitive “revelation”. I like that the book comes from the faithful approach and is not just a book bashing the Mormon faith. I just wonder why Emma did not get a personal witness of the practice of poligamy like many of Joseph’s other brides.
