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 prophetâ€™s bold contributions to Christian theology and
his cultural place in the modern world.
