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

Episode 4 focuses on Joseph Smith, the Prophet.

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

As an uneducated farm boy claiming to see God the Father, Jesus Christ, and various angels, Joseph Smith also claimed to translate an ancient record and receive modern revelation. Experiencing sorrow and failure as well as joy and success in his abbreviated life, he was eventually killed by a mob for his beliefs. Can someone be both very human and also a mouthpiece for God?
