I've read a lot of cheesy LDS books so I was happily surprised that this one didn't fit into that category. I thought it was well written and has information that some LDS members might not know.

The one thing that bothered me was the cover photo. Everyone knows that the plates were not translated with Joseph and his scribe sitting at a table like this. In the book he talks about needing a blanket to separate Joseph from his scribe or Joseph putting his head into a hat to read his seerstone or U

I picked up this book on a clearance rack because I like LDS history and thought it looked interesting. The author did include a few interesting facts about the coming forth of the Book or Mormon that I didn't know about, but not too many. The book was well researched but for the most part was just the normal story of how the Joseph Smith got the plates and translated the Book of Mormon - it would probably make for more interesting reading if you didn't already know most of the story.

A very interesting book about the restoring of additional scriptures brought forth in the 1830's.
Would be especially good for anyone who hasn't read other books of this event nor have visited the historical places where this event happened.

This was a good book retelling about Joseph Smith obtaining the Gold Plates. There were a lot of additional information that I was not aware of . I enjoyed reading and refreshing my memory of all the sacrifice made by many people so that we can have what we do today as members of the church.

The story of how The Book of Mormon came to be. Well and thoroughly researched. Can be used as a reference book but read easily. Plainly and simply told leaves the reader to decide for themselves.

Great information. I listened to this on CD and the readers were very good. I love the back story and I love little details. This was a great read on more information about how it all came about.
