Great collection!

Thank you for collecting all of these talks about Joseph Smith. I feel even more strongly than ever before that God called Joseph to preach Christ anew for us.

Love it

I listen to these lectures every couple of years and I am always amazed and the new piece of information that pops out to me.
I wish the recording quality was better, but it still worth listening too!
