My subject is Joseph Smith in a personal world. My lens is primarily a personal one—his impact on me and believers I have known during my lifetime. I will also discuss Joseph Smith's own personal world and his impact on his acquaintances and friends. A major focus will be Joseph Smith's role as a prophet and his teachings on the reality of revelation. By prophet I mean one who speaks for God in revealing divine truth to others. By revelation I mean God's communication to man—to prophets and to every one of us, if we seek.
