Joseph Smith’s Response to Skepticism
by Robert N. Hullinger
“Hullinger … places Joseph Smith in his time and environment. The effort of the young Smith reveals itself as an original and genuinely religiously motivated answer to the religious and national problems of its religious milieu.” — Heikki Raisanen, Theologische Literaturseitung
“Robert Hullinger has extracted the major religious thought patterns from the Book of Mormon, steeped himself in the ideas and literature of Joseph Smith’s time, and correlated his findings into a readable account. He makes available to readers a great amount of material in bringing to our generation the flavor and overtones of those days in western New York.” — Wesley P. Walters, pastor, Marissa, Illinois, Presbyterian Church
Robert N. Hullinger serves Bethany Lutheran Church in Erlanger, Kentucky, as pastor. He is a graduate of Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California, and of Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.
