Summary
"In Joseph Smith, Robert Remini explores one of the Jacksonian epoch's major figures. The most important reformer and innovator in American religious history, Joseph Smith has remained a fascinating enigma to many both inside and outside the Mormon Church, which he founded." "Born in 1805, Smith grew up during the Second Great Awakening, when secular tumult had spawned radical religious fervor and countless new sects. His contemplative nature and soaring imagination - the first of his many visions occurred at the age of fourteen - were nurtured in the close, loving family created by his deeply devout parents. His need to lead and be recognized was met by his mission as God's vehicle for a new faith and by the multitudes who, mesmerized by his charm and charismatic preaching, flocked to the Mormon Church. Remini brings Smith into unprecedented focus and contextualizes his enduring contributions to American life and culture within the distinctive characteristics of an extraordinary age."--Jacket
