    I have several friends who have left the Church after learning about aspects of the life of the Prophet Joseph Smith, or the history of the Church that disturbed them This book feels like an attempt to address those issues, and to be up front about them so that people aren t blindsided by them later, or given the impression that the Church is trying to hide something.Being a narrative history it was a quick and easy read, and I can see why it was done th

    Reading as someone who is not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, I found this book to be a very detailed account of the early years of the Latter day Saints movement As an official Church publication, I suppose one could make the argument that the book is biased in favor of the traditional narrative, but I don t think that really impacts negatively on the book s value as a historical work There s a lot of fascinating history here,

    The most refreshing thing about the book Saints is that it does not hide the fact that the men and women of the early church were flawed individuals Even though they had been called to some of the Lord s most important work, their human frailties and weaknesses came out over and over again But this didn t stop them or the work The repentant and humble were still allowed to be instruments in the hands of the Lord And their struggle, is OUR struggle Each of us is called to
