Overview

In the spring of 1820 Joseph Smith Jr. emerged from a grove of trees with a message that would change the world and convert millions to the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. This mere boy not only claimed that he had seen the God of heaven and the Savior of mankind, but he also said that they had told him the Christian faith was in dire need of renewal.

As the foundation upon which Mormonism is built, Joseph Smith's First Vision is canonized as scripture, taught to children, preached by missionaries, and frequently repeated in sermons by LDS Church leaders. President Gordon B. Hinckley explained the vital role of this historical narrative when he said that "our entire case as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints rests on the validity of this glorious First Vision."

In this rich in-depth study, author Matthew B. Brown helps the reader realize the First Vision more fully - with added detail, clarity, and understanding. He places events in historical context, answers criticisms, and compares and contrasts the various recitals of the First Vision, showing the remarkable harmony that exists between the accounts as well as the minor differences in the retellings.

Gain deeper insight about one of the most important events in history in this fascinating well-researched volume by acclaimed LDS historian Matthew B. Brown. The most comprehensive book available that compares the various versions of the First Vision.
