    Part 1 of Blair’s interview with Bushman was top notch. I’ve downloaded part 2 and look forward to listening to it tomorrow on my run. Thanks.

    Thanks Blair. This was timely for me as I’ve started editing Joseph’s April 8, 1844 sermon. The unfolding of Zion has been on my mind. Good stuff.

    Great work Blair. It’s always great to hear more from Bushman. Thanks for doing this.

    I recently came across (and just obtained but haven’t yet read) a Joseph Smith Biography by Professor Bushman copyrighted 1984 (Joseph Smith and the Beginnings of Mormonism). This book was not mentioned in the interview.

    May I ask how this earlier work fits into or relates to Professor Bushman’s study of Joseph Smith and the early history of the LDS church?
