Narrator ruined it for me.

I generally love to read church history, and the stories were good, but the narrator over-acted so badly that I could not finish the book. I never understood the basis of his accents or inflections for the various figures in the book and it just became too distracting

Beautiful

The narrator did a beautiful job with this work. The history is candid and warmly written. It shows an imperfect people with a nearly perfect faith during trials and tribulations.

Narrator ruins the rest

The history is very well written and very interesting. The quotes selected are great—-except for the horrible fakey “accents” the narrator used to read them. The narration made me grit my teeth through the entire book. Just finished it, and heaved a great sigh of relief. I hope to goodness that a different narrator is used for the next volume.

Fascinating and sad

The themes are missionary work and polygamy. The missionary success seems remarkable considering all the problems faced by members. Polygamy would have served a purpose and certainly has biblical precedent but became a huge problem as the US government heaped increasing sanctions against its participants. Ironically, a man can now marry another man. The book well portrays the array of personal pains resulting from the abrupt end to polygamy.

Great primer for a new convert

I ❤️❤️❤️ this story. I'm a recent convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (6/29/19). Listening to No Unhallowed Hand (after Vol. 1The Standard of Truth) was so helpful for connecting all the stories of the early church together in one well written, beautifully narrated book. Join the fold of God's church here on the earth and then listen to both these volumes.

Instructive

Learned a lot and gained a greater appreciation for the sacrifice of the early saints and the blessings received through obedience.
