Except for the Scriptures, The Teachings Of The Prophet Joseph Smith is the most authoritative book on Latter-day Saint doctrine. The purpose of this Introduction to the Prophet and his teachings is to help create a better understanding and appreciation of the nature and depth of the revelations which Joseph Smith received and which he tried valiantly to get others to understand. Faithful Latter-day Saints who seek a deeper knowledge of the Prophet and the nature and extent of the revelations that God gave to him begin to sense the love and appreciation which President Brigham Young voiced when he exclaimed, “I feel like shouting Hallelujah, all the time, when I think that I ever knew Joseph Smith, the Prophet whom the Lord raised up and ordained, and to whom he gave keys and power to build up the kingdom of God on earth and sustain it.”1
