Is slowing down?

You may have wondered where I’ve been lately.  I haven’t posted any substantial posts over the last few days.  But, no need to worry.  I have assigned myself a fairly large side project that I believe will be of worth to researchers, historians, students, and anyone wanting to learn more about the prophet Joseph Smith, and the historical beginnings of the LDS Church and Mormonism.  It will be a small extension of Richard Bushman’s landmark biography of the prophet, Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling.  Anyone who has read Bushman’s biography I think will be particularly appreciative of it.  I don’t want to go into too many details now, but just wanted to let you know my posting will probably be minimal until I finish this project, which I hope I’ll be able to do before the FAIR Conference on August 7-8, which I am excited to attend.  That might be an unrealistic goal for its scope, but I’m attempting it.  Once I’m done, the results will be accessible here at  In the meantime, there might be some posts in the archive that you might not have seen yet.

Stay tuned…

    My wife and I read Rough Stone Rolling about a year ago. What an incredible book. I’m excited to hear your perspective of the book and the extension that you are going to present.

    Keep on posting. We’ve been following you for a couple months now and find your comments very enlightening.

    Awesome! I can’t wait to see your work. Bushman’s book is so good and deserves to be utilized more by the Saints.
