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.

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.

Kudos to all the saints who kept journals and recorded the events of their lives, that someone would/could compile them for us to read. It’s given me a greater appreciation for the restored church.

Excellent Read

The Book arrived on Thursday afternoon and I read 4 Chapters before going to bed. I found this book such an interesting Read, that I couldn't put it down. I finished reading it the following Wednesday. I can't wait to read volume 2 in the series. The book goes into so much detail about what Joseph Smith and the Saints went through yet still pressed forward.

Great History, Great Price

I was given a copy and read it over a 2 week period. I was fascinated with the down-to-earth writing and content of the book. I enthralled me from its clear opening statements through to the last sentence so much so that I could not stop reading even into the late evenings in bed.

That copy has been 'given' to another Ward member with a note inside the front cover stating my promise to the Sister in Moe Ward that I would read,learn and sign the book before passing it onto another to do the same.

Although this defeats your sales policy, it does ensure that the book WILL be circulated inside and outside of our beloved Church. I pray that those who do read it will either purchase a copy and/or want to obtain the next 3 volumes.

Thank you for a most informative and uplifting book.

Saints showed how Joseph Smith was human and faltered, but kept striving to do better. It seemed He always had strife. He accomplished so much through his constant trials. I liked the different things that were happening to other members at the same time. I think it would have been hard to follow him and applaud the strong and faithful Saints who always stuck by him.

It is a wonderful journey in the life of those great faithful saints who’s journey should be a lesson in faith to all of us. It shows how great full we all should be.
