Saints, The Standard of Truth book club

Beginning next week, Daniel Ortner and I will begin a book club to discuss the Church’s new history book, Saints vol 1.

We’ll have two posts per month, each covering two chapters. The chapters are rather short, so it will be easy reading. All are  invited to share in the comments. It may be a chance to compare this with other books on Joseph Smith

The first post will also cover the introduction.

  1. Looking forward to a chance to review the content of Saints. This might be a thing where a “live” chat event would be useful.
