AMERICAN CRUCIFIXION by Alex Beam

April 29, 2014

Alex Beam spoke about his book, American Crucifixion: The Murder of Joseph Smith and the Fate of the Mormon Church , at Politics & Prose on Tuesday, April 29, 2014.

Mormonism is America's largest and most enduring native religion, and the "martyrdom" of Joseph Smith is one of its transformational events. Smith's brutal assassination propelled the Mormons to colonize the American West and claim their place in the mainstream of American history. American Crucifixion is a gripping story of scandal and violence, with deep roots in our national identity.
