it was amazing
bookshelves: religion, history, biography, non-fiction
Read in July, 1998

This is the story of a man who both went against the flow and remained devout in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Arrington is one of the great figures in Mormon scholarship because he achieved mainstream academic respect. Dispensing with the religious implications, it is also a very interesting story of a man who figured out how to be a great historian. I recommend this book as must-read for anyone into Mormon studies.
