Undaunted Witnesses of the Book of Mormon is a weekly docuseries that discusses the historical witnesses to the Book of Mormon plates.

Episode 3 focuses on David Whitmer, known to members of the Church as one of the “Three Witnesses”.

Camrey Bagley Fox hosts guest Gerrit Dirkmaat, Associate Professor of Church History and Doctrine at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

David Whitmer was one of the Three Witnesses, from a whole family of witnesses of the Gold Plates. Yet after falling out with Joseph Smith, David left the Church and never returned. But he also never denied his testimony of the Book of Mormon—and, in fact, emphatically repeated that witness countless times through the remainder of his life.
