22gigantes.com - Here is the printed version of the "Joseph Smith tapes." More than all else I have written or recorded, these cassettes have engendered a return wave, international in scope, of responsive letters and comments. Apparently we live in a new era of catch-all listening: the padded earphones of the "Walkman," the car-cassette playback, the ever-faster computer access to ever-larger "databases." Recurrent questions include these: Where were the lectures given? To whom was I talking? Why was the material recorded instead of written? Whence my long-standing interest in Joseph Smith? How is it that I talk as if I know him? How reliable are the many documents I cite, and where can they be found? Where might one go to read more? The most frequent query has been, "When are you going to publish the lectures and provide the sources?" The lectures were delivered at Brigham Young University's Marriott Center during an Education Week. That a goodly number came to give eight hours of undivided-or even divided-attention to these two-a-day classes was a manifestation of the richness of the subject. The audience was "in-house." With them I could begin with presumptions and assurances which to others would have appeared startling. But between the lines I was also thinking of many who had posed penetrating queries about Joseph Smith over the years, both in and out of the classroom. They were an "invisible" audience. And at certain points it is apparent that I was addressing them, in a kind of underground conversation, more than those present.

He had a Ph.D. from Harvard in Theology and Philosophy. He was brilliant and eccentric. After graduating from Harvard, I think he went straight to BYU to teach Religion and Philosophy, and I believe he remained there until his death at around 83 a few years ago. I liked this book; I thought it was very informative about the personal details of Joseph Smith's life. Madsen even says that Joseph had a dog named Major. He deals with Joseph's trials, tribulations, and successes. It's entertaining, but one has to understand that Madsen only concentrates on the positive aspects of Joseph's life. I later read Fawn Brodie's book, "No Man Knows My History," which raises a lot of questions about Joseph's affirmations. When studying Joseph's life, one has to recognize that he was a gifted and brilliant leader. But the question arises: Did he start off right and end up wrong with his introduction of polygamy? On p. 376 of her book, Brodie cites Joseph as saying that he was wrong about polygamy, and tried to reverse the practice, but it was too late. He died soon thereafter. And if he went wrong, and the church survived, then one has to conclude that the one thing he did right, among many other things that he did right, was that he conferred the Priesthood on others who honored it, and kept on honoring it despite many who didn't. These men who honored it did not practice polygamy. Madsen doesn't deal with these questions, but I think his book is a beautiful portrayal of Joseph's personal traits. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Excellent Work By S. Sampson I've had the audio CDs since I was missionary and I listen to them every now and then, but the ebook is awesome because it has a little extra annotations plus the references to the material cited. The best thing about the ebook is that you can search for words and phrases and copy and paste if you wanted to quote Dr Madsen.Dr Madsen's work on this awakened my love for the prophet and deepened my testimony of his divine mission. It's powerful. The ebook or the CD ought to be in every members reach. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Excellent overview of the Prophet's life By Amazon Customer Truman Madsen is a treasure trove of information and testimony of the the Prophet's life. I wish I knew a quarter of what he knows. I am currently going through his second set on the life and teachings of Joseph Smith and the book Rough Stone Rolling by Richard Bushman. It has been an amazing journey to understand the life Joseph Smith led and his strengths and flaws. The Spirit truly testifies that these things are true! See all 50 customer reviews...
