The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has been around for almost two centuries. It has ebbed and fluctuated in such a predictably adaptive manner throughout it's relatively short life in the religious realm. This Church has a very sordid past, which it does a very good job of teaching for itself, whether the history is slanted or not, is yours to decide. Join me on a journey through the history of the LDS Church through the eyes of the people that were actually there. We will learn about the founding members, where the practices came from, where the Book of Mormon (Mormon Bible) came from, and most importantly, we will examine Joseph Smith in every aspect possibly available to us today.

On this episode, we take a break from the killer amount of work to put the last episode together in order to have a discussion with listener Shawn Jolley. She's quick, knowledgeable, and armed with a DSM with a very useful section on Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Maybe we can learn something about Joseph Smith with a little bit of armchair psychological profiling of the prophet.

On this episode, we attempt to deconstruct the Book of Mormon, just to see what it really is, and where it really came from. Turns out we only scratch the surface, even though the episode really is that long... You might want to digest it in smaller bytes.
