BYU Studies is happy to announce that its upcoming issue is devoted entirely to presenting a unique chronology of the life of the Prophet Joseph Smith. This comprehensive chronology allows readers to track the life of Joseph Smith, week by week and year by year, as he functioned as prophet, revelator, husband, father, brother, friend, citizen, city builder, public speaker, and religious leader.
Seeing his life as a single sequence helps readers to place the events of his life in interesting contexts and to uncover various connections and interrelationships. The color-coded entries in this chronology attractively categorize the Prophet's activities and show trends day by day in the following areas:
- ecclesiastical duties
- visions and revelations
- personal life
- legal events
- political events
This issue will be a valuable resource for years to come.
