Abstract:

[In this book, the author] delivers a ... performance. The book is argued, Joseph Smith emerges as neither hero nor charlatan, but as a strangely gifted yet thoroughly believable product of his time and place. [The book is an] informed study of America's larger-than-life Prophet and Seer, Joseph Smith. It is also an important history of Mormonism's founding era. In [the book, the author] tells how Smith formed a new religion from the ground up. Moving beyond the popular stereotype of Smith as a colorful fraud, the book explores the inner workings of his personality - his personal piety, his temper, his affection for family and friends, and his incredible determination. It describes how he received revelations and why his followers believed them. -Dust jacket.
