I think this book was well written, easy to understand, and honest. I think it does a good job of including the controversial topics that bother people. I do wish they gave a little more time to the good. At some points it seems like there authors are trying so hard to show all the controversial parts that they skip over the hope that the gospel was bringing to so many people. I think more first hand quotations from converts would be nice. Overall I'm glad they touched on so many topics, but I think to really do it justice, a little more light and doctrine should be added. Never the less, I would recommend it.

I just finished this book. It was enlightening. I think it has given me a better understanding of why there is so much controversy about the church. I feel like the authors went to great lengths to make it honest, and I appreciate that. It was well written, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in American or church history. Lots of quotations and sources. I will probably read it again. It isn't a completely feel good book, and leaves you realizing just how human these people were. I like that about it. It is written from a faithful perspective, but still gives you enough details to see the conflicts and allows you to explore your open feelings.
