Joseph Smith, the Prophet-Teacher
On December 22, 1907, just before the 102nd anniversary of the birth of Joseph Smith, B.H. Roberts gave a stirring discourse on Joseph Smith and his role as a prophet and teacher. He states “If I could attain the full desire of my heart, I would like to set before you somewhat the value of this man as a teacher of great truths. I desire to speak of him as a Prophet-Teacher, that is, as a Prophet acting in his capacity of Teacher, a Prophet’s highest and noblest office.” Roberts examines the prophet’s corrections of secterian doctrine, his philosophical doctrines, his generalizations and words of wisdom, and his role as the great American prophet.
This specially prepared ebook from Zion’s Camp Books contains Roberts’ sermon, formatted and footnoted to give the reader an excellent ebook experience.
