The Lion of the Lord

A Biography of Brigham Young


There are three major problems connected with this “biography” of Brigham Young. First, it is not based on the primary sources which detail the life and thought of Brigham Young. Second, it does not present to the reader a portrait of Brigham Young as a family man, as a church president, as a territorial governor, and as a businessman. Third, granted that the life of Brigham Young is inextricably linked with the Church he so profoundly influenced, the author has demonstrated only a superficial knowledge of the history and doctrine of that Church.
