Review: Early Mormonism and the Magic World View

Nutzerbericht  - Dan Gorman - Goodreads

Great ideas, compelling arguments in favor of a relaxed LDS view toward complex parts of its history, and awe-inspiring thoroughness in its research. HOWEVER, extremely dense, tough to read, and tough to follow at times. More of a reference guide than a proper reading experience. Vollständige Rezension lesen
