Quote of the Week

Week of September 22, 2014“After the Crucifixion of the Savior and the death of His Apostles, people changed some of the doctrines and ordinances of the gospel. Even though many good people believed in Jesus Christ and tried to understand and teach His gospel, the fullness of truth was no longer available. The result was varying stages of apostasy among the surviving Christians. While they had many truths, none of them had the fullness of Christ’s doctrines, ordinances, or priesthood.”

--"The Gospel of Jesus Christ was Restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith," Ensign, December 2012, p. 8.

Review of In Sacred Loneliness: The Plural Wives of Joseph Smith (Signature Books, 1997)

Although many Mormons know that second LDS President Brigham Young was a practicing polygamist, some may not realize that Joseph Smith had many wives as well. When this issue is broached, I have heard it said more than once that we were connocting nothing more than an anti-Mormon lie. What LDS writer Todd Compton does in this book is explain details about each of Joseph Smith's 33 wives. Reading it may cause you to forever change your opinon about the founder of the LDS Church.
