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 sit down with author/historian D. Michael Quinn to hear his biographical sketch. We begin with how he came to fall in love with information and history then hear how he came into contact with "anti-Mormon propaganda," only to find out it was true. Then he takes us on a journey through his education and career in Mormon history working in the office of Leonard J. Arrington and then becoming employed by BYU as a professor.
This is part 1 of a 2-part interview with Dr. Quinn.
