|About the Book|
This is a series of scholarly essays--need to be a Church history buff to be interested in wading through this book. I found it full of new information, very helpful in presenting a full picture of Oliver Cowdery. His education, intelligence, background, quiet personality and careful studious ability rendered him perfect to be Joseph Smiths scribe and Second Elder in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. In spite of miraculous experiences he did not have a well grounded testimony in the Lord Jesus Christ and excuses led him away. Fascinating story, and tragic.
