More than what I expected!

I thought this would only be a historical account of the restoration, but it goes beyond just the narrative. The analysis of the historical figures involved, the discussion of lack of journals and personal histories, and the background setting of what was happening at the time of the priesthood restoration is well presented and put together. Thank you for this thoughtful podcast! It is a beautiful way to learn about these events.

Terrific intro to Latter-day Saint authority

Truly enjoyed this podcast about the priesthood, as restored by Joseph Smith. I feel like I am very familiar with the stories and documents, but I still learned a lot and was surprisingly entertained, too.

Praise to the man?

Joseph Smith pressured his adopted teenage daughters into marriage. In 2022 a sex predator was arrested in Arizona, the church knew about it for years and did nothing. Thank God for Righteousness priesthood leaders…
