"The life and ministry of the Prophet Joseph Smith are indeed the substance of great things and remarkable events. They have created a legacy that will continue to increase among mankind. He was the Lord’s latter-day servant who was chosen to bear witness anew of the resurrected Christ."

--Gordon B. Hinckley,, "What Hath God Wrought through His Servant Joseph", Ensign, Jan 1997, 2

Joseph Smith Collector's Edition
George Q. Cannon

The Life of Joseph Smith the Prophet is much more than a detailed biography of the events of Joseph Smith’s life; it’s also what Apostle George Q. Cannon thought and felt about the life of Joseph Smith—a man he knew well. The author’s passionate writing style combined with interviews from friends and associates of the Prophet and excerpts from historical documents create an insightful and compelling portrait of the first Prophet of this dispensation.

After describing the martyrdom of the Prophet, Cannon’s closing tribute to Joseph reads: “The enemies of truth were sure that they had now destroyed the work. And yet it lives, greater and stronger after the lapse of years! It is indestructible for it is the work of God. And knowing that it is the eternal work of God, we know that Joseph Smith, who established it, was a Prophet holy and pure.”

This handsome illustrated edition of Life of Joseph Smith the Prophet features a ribbon marker and showcases more than two dozen beautiful paintings by renowned artists such as Robert Barrett, Liz Lemon Swindle, Glen Hopkinson, and Al Rounds. A timeless classic in LDS Church history, Life of Joseph Smith the Prophet belongs in every LDS family’s library.
