Sweet Is the Word is designed, Arnold tells us, for at least two audiences. It is written partially for her colleagues who are not Latter-day Saints—people who, as she herself says, may be perplexed that a person with such training and literary experience could take Joseph Smith and Mormonism seriously. The author continues, "I also write it for my Mormon friends, . . . those who have not yet been swept away by the miracle of the [Book of Mormon], and those who have. May the latter find new reason to celebrate it."
