Abstract
The prophet Joseph Smith was an extraordinary man who performed a singular role in the Restoration of the gospel. This volume is not intended to be a comprehensive review of his life nor of the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which he founded. Instead, it gives glimpses into many well-known and some not-so-familiar events that took place before and during Joseph Smith’s lifetime. It includes a brief look into the lives of Joseph’s grandfather Asael; his parents, Joseph Senior and Lucy Mack; and his wife, Emma. The martyrdom and a few subsequent occurrences are included as well.
 
Each featured event is approached from two very different points of views. The well-researched historical vignettes contain fascinating background information and details that may be unfamiliar to many readers. The poems provide a fresh perspective and give thought-provoking insights. Accompanying scriptures, as well as quotations and photos of four of Joseph’s successors (those who knew him personally and labored with him as adults), add still another dimension to the work.
 
I trust that this small volume will be a valuable addition to the literature that celebrates the Restoration and honors Joseph Smith, the great Latter-day Prophet and Seer of the Lord who “has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it.”
