While I like this book in its entirety and enjoy its somewhat unusual content, I'd have to say the Joseph Smith: History portion to be of greatest significance and effect upon me. Touching scene when the prophet Enoch perceives the poetic analogy of tears falling from "heaven" as rain when God considers the wickedness upon the Earth.

Rickey That scene, and others, show God more as a loving Father than the spiteful tyrant that I misunderstood Him to be from the brief and sporadic forays into the Bible when I was a child. At the time, I did not go to church and was being raised by an atheistic dad who had many anti-religion books to share. There are so many things people have to say on these matters. It is actually a relief to find more books that are at least purportedly from God through a prophet. Now, whether this is actually scripture or whether Joseph Smith was actually a prophet is an important question and worth deep studies and consideration.
