Abstract

After purchasing a Book of Mormon from Samuel Smith, brother of Joseph Smith, Phinehas Young thought it his duty to prove the book a fraud. He thought Joseph must have been deceived and read the book to discover the errors and save the people from the deception. He was soon convinced otherwise and recommended the book to his devoutly religious family, including Brigham Young, who joined the Church.
