Comments to eBook The Mormon Experience: A HISTORY OF THE LATTER-DAY SAINTS
Alsanadar
One of the better histories of LDS Christianity, and probably the first really good overall history.

As someone who has read many, many books on the topic of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I can honestly say that this text is one of the best books on Mormon history I have so far come across. I believe that the late Arrington and Bitton do an excellent job in providing a fair and balanced overview of the Latter-day Saint religion since 1820, as well as refuting some common anti-Mormon claims, showing that, contra the late Wesley Walters, author of "Inventing Mormonism" and other screeds, religious revivals *did* occur in 1819-1820, consistent with the chronology offered by the Prophet Joseph Smith in the History of the Church and the versions of the First Vision he gave throughout his lifetime.

Recommended reading for any serious student of "Mormonism."

Another excellent book and quick arrival.

The book is history which I love. It was reasonably priced, the shipping charges were reasonable, the book is as described and it arrived quickly. What more could I ask for.

THE scholar of mormon history.
Fecage
Great historical reference for learning about the Mormon religion. Lots of stuff even Mormons didn't know. They went through a lot.

Leonard Arrington was a church historian who did a masterful job of showing what was going on, that not only drew people to join the Mormon church , but why Mormons were driven from the communities they moved into and ultimately needed to move west, to establish an independent society.
I liked this book. I am still in the middle of it. The information is accurate. But it is dry. I can only read a little at a time.
