Cover has some light edge and corner wear. ; Singing the hymn, "Praise to the Man" draws to mind the nobility and greatness of the Prophet Joseph Smith. But few know the story behind the lyrics. William W. Phelps, who penned the words, knew too well. He was one of Joseph's closest friends and confidants, privileged to take "sweet counsel" with the Prophet. But he turned against Joseph Smith and the Church. Praise to the Man is a tender story about the power of the Atonement and repentance and forgiveness. What happened between Phelps and the Prophet also defines Joseph Smith's character, revealing him to be a loving man, capable of intense feeling and ever willing to forgive. In Brother Phelps's betrayal and the Prophet's response is found the prodigal son story of this dispensation. It is truly a story of uncommon friendship. ; 7 x 4.25 x 4.5 Inches; 134 pages
