Mr. Mormon can take a normal LDS member and turn them into a Super-Mormon by using new ideas and discoveries from science, the cosmos, world history, and the scriptures. Mr. Mormon teaches about a supernova that was recorded by Chinese astronomers at the time of the birth of Jesus. It discovers that Joseph Smith taught the theory of time relativity over a half of a century before Albert Einstein.

I learned the truth and resigned my membership. my integrity will not allow me to follow a cult that was founded by a polygamist, polyandrist, pedophile... worse than Warren Jeffs

Live in the period of 1830-1844. Feel the personal thoughts of Brewster Cabot who followed, loved, and suffered persecution with one proclaimed to be a prophet, Joseph Smith, the man who started The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Joe Smith was no more of a prophet than Warren Jeffs is, except he was worse. pedophile, polygamist, polyandrist. celestial marriage, DC 132,... invented to get Emma to shut up.

In 2004, Julie Rowe was a happy wife and mother. Then her health took a turn for the worse. While in a weakened state, her spirit left her body and entered the Spirit World. An ancestor named John greeted her and showed her many wonderful places there. He also allowed her to read from the Book of Life, which showed her a panorama of the earth's past, present, and future.

the first half of the book was unnecessary to write. she could have just said everything in the Bible and everything in the church is just as written. she didn't add anything new

Based on a myriad of sources, it covers Jefferson's ancestry, youth, education, and legal career; his marriage and the building of Monticello; the drafting of the Declaration of Independence and the Notes on Virginia; his rich, fruitful legislative career; his highly controversial governorship; and his early services to the development of the West.

I definately will not be buying any of the subsequent volumes...the reading is tedious at best. The one thing that was lacking in this volume is EDITING. Another problem is too much editorialized opinion. Surprising lack of quality from a college professor.
