Mormon founder Joseph Smith is one of the most controversial figures of 19th-century American history, and a virtually inexhaustible subject for analysis. In this book, fifteen scholars offer their thoughts on how to interpret and understand Smith and his legacy. Including chapters by both Mormons and non-Mormons, this collection is a survey of contemporary scholarly opinion on the extraordinary man who started one of the fastest growing religious traditions in the modern world.
