An Excellent Insight To Joseph Smith and Early Mormonism,
This review is from: No Man Knows My History (Vintage) (Paperback)
Let me be very clear here. Im not a Latter Day Saint but I have 100% respect for them. I regard them as good people and a pleasure to talk to. I read this book because it comes up in conversations when people try to "bash" Mormons. I have no interesting in "bashing" anybody but their religion fascinates me although I don't believe it.
I've read all the negative reviews about it being one sided and kept this in mind as I read it. I really don't see why anyone would think it one sided because all the evidence Brodie presents is footnoted, explaining where he got the information from (most of the times its from LDS own periodicals/books/pamphlets).
I think this is an excellent read and I was fully engrossed in reading it.
Some reviews on here say its written with prejudice but I disagree. Although the author obviously isn't a believer the whole point of the book is to point out all the inaccuracies, changes and errors that Joseph Smith and the book of Mormon made.
