rickg Posted June 24, 2007 Share Posted June 24, 2007 OK. Here's one of the big reasons for me coming to this forum. Some years ago (5 or 6) my brother had some bad experiences with his stake pres, that I won't go into detail about right now. Anyhow, he more or less quit going to church in a bit of a huff. Started looking at "anti" stuff on the 'net, and came across some guys web sight. Apparently he had been a "good, active" member of the church, and for what ever reason was doing research on church history in Salt Lake. I'm under the assumption that he somehow got access to the church's archives. I guess he supposedly started finding things about either Joseph Smith, or Brigham Young(or maybe both) that the church leaders were keeping secret and hidden away, for whatever reasons. He left the church, and wrote this big book about his "discoveries", which my brother bought and then left the church for good. Had his name removed from the records and all. I only saw the book sitting in his family room, but never picked it up, or talked to my brother about it. What I know about it comes from my wife talking to his wife. My brother and I can't discuss any of this without major tempers flaring, so we've had to "agree to disagree", and let it go, focusing instead on our brother-brother relationship. But I've been curious about that book since. I'm pretty confidant there's nothing in it that'd sway my testimony. I really don't want to read it, but am just curious about what all the fuss is about. Anybody know anything about this book, and/or the guy that wrote it? Maybe it's been discussed here? Link to comment
