Believing history Latter-day Saint essays by Richard L Bushman( )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Joseph Smith cannot be dismissed as a colorful fraud, Bushman argues, nor seen only as a restorer of religious truth. Entangled in nineteenth-century Yankee culture -- including the skeptical Enlightenment -- Smith was nevertheless an original who cut his own path. And while there are multiple contexts from which to draw an understanding of Joseph Smith (including magic, seekers, the Second Great Awakening, communitarianism, restorationism, and more), Bushman suggests that Smith stood at the cusp of modernity and presented the possibility of belief in a time of growing skepticism. When examined carefully, the Book of Mormon is found to have intricate subplots and peculiar cultural twists. Bushman discusses the book's ambivalence toward republican government, explores the culture of the Lamanites (the enemies of the favored people), and traces the book's fascination with records, translation, and history. Yet Believing History also sheds light on the meaning of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon today. How do we situate Mormonism in American history? Is Mormonism relevant in the modern world? Believing History offers many surprises. Believers will learn that Joseph Smith is more than an icon, and non-believers will find that Mormonism cannot be summed up with a simple label. - Publisher

[In this book, the author] delivers a ... performance. The book is argued, Joseph Smith emerges as neither hero nor charlatan, but as a strangely gifted yet thoroughly believable product of his time and place. [The book is an] informed study of America's larger-than-life Prophet and Seer, Joseph Smith. It is also an important history of Mormonism's founding era. In [the book, the author] tells how Smith formed a new religion from the ground up. Moving beyond the popular stereotype of Smith as a colorful fraud, the book explores the inner workings of his personality - his personal piety, his temper, his affection for family and friends, and his incredible determination. It describes how he received revelations and why his followers believed them. -Dust jacket
