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 prophet's bold contributions to Christian theology and his cultural place in the modern world.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Richard Lyman BushmanPublisher: VintagePublished: 03/13/2007ISBN: 9781400077533Pages: 740Weight: 2.44lbsSize: 9.00h x 6.10w x 1.50dReview Citations: New York Times 05/06/2007 pg. 32
