    2. Finally an authoritative discussion surrounding the life of Joseph Smith. For years I have heard that Joseph was indicted for several serious offences, but no further details were available (that I knew of). I heard Bro Joseph sending the twelve on missions to England, and yet details were sparse. I heard many were angry with the Latter-day Saints in Missouri, but only "heard" plasuible reasons. From the time of Bro Joseph's leg surgery in his home (and the detailed miracle that was) to his mart [...]

    3. Reading this book, which contains the entire texts of "Revelations Book 1" and "Revelations Book 2," was an amazing experience. "Revelations Book 1," which was only recently discovered in the Church archives, was used to set the type for the Book of Commandments printed in Independence. It is the earliest known manuscript of Joseph Smith's early revelations, although it was apparently created by copying an even earlier, but now lost, manuscript or manuscripts. The language of the revelations is [...]

    4. A fascinating way to read the early revelations in the Doctrine and Covenants. Plus, I had always wondered where Orson Pratt got his information about pure language. It appears to have been the result of the continuation of the Q&A in D&C 77.I've already been accused of being a bit odd for having read through the book (by one of the volume editors, no less) but I recommend this to anyone who wants to study the Doctrine and Covenants seriously.I suppose I am a bit odd.

    5. This large format book gives color photographs of all the original recorded revelations from the early days of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which ended up in the Book of Commandments and the early Doctrine & Covenants. Each revelation is also fully transcribed, with scribes noted and other relevant historical information. There is no better souce to see and understand what Joseph Smith received in the early 1830s.

    6. I got this yesterday and absolutely love it. It is very straightforward, without a whole lot of interpretation to it, but it is amazing. It is a must have for students of Mormon history.
