It is one thing to read history as others interpret and write it down. It is another matter entirely to read the original documents of those who made that history in the first place and draw your own conclusions. Imagine reading accounts of those who were there at the Kirtland Temple dedications, or seeing for yourself those documents that show the reasons for the failure of the Church’s Kirtland Safety Society Bank. What do we know of the coming forth of the Book of Abraham or the first missionaries called abroad? This and so much more in the newest volume of the Joseph Smith Papers. Documents Volume 5 is this episode of History of the Saints.
