John C. Bennett and Early Mormon Audio

Interview

Posted September 8th, 2015

Have you ever wondered what John C. Bennett had to say about his time in Nauvoo, his excommunication from the church, or his relationship with Joseph Smith? Have you ever wanted to read all those testimonials about treasure digging and folk magic in “Mormonism Unvailed” but just found that old book too dense and long and daunting? Have you ever been interested in early Mormon speculative theology that tries to reconcile faith with science and ends up with far out sci-fi Battlestar Galactic type explanations for things?

Have you ever wished that someone would just read all those things for you and you could just listen along?

Well we have. And we finally decided to do something about it.

In this not-so-mini minisode, Glenn talks about his new side project Early Mormon Audio, and gives you a sneak peak into the first part of John C. Bennett’s 1842 “The History of the Saints -or- An Expose of Joe Smith and Mormonism.”

Enjoy.
