Wednesday, December 21: Joseph Smith - Rough Stone Rolling

Salt Lake City – Friday marks the 200th anniversary of Joseph Smith's birth. As the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Smith's life and theology has had a profound effect on American religion, and on the culture of Utah. Nevertheless, he remains an enigmatic and controversial figure. Richard Bushman's new biography, Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling, is the newest contribution to the scholarship on Smith, and the author joins Doug Fabrizio to discuss his significant work.
