Joseph Smith, the prophet of Mormonism, had a keen interest in studying the four gospels in his youth. Soon after the Book of Mormon was published, Smith commenced his next major project--revising the Bible. His English revision was based upon the standard text of the day, the King James Version. Smith considered that he could recover wording that had been lost in translation. He made a new version that could be used by the church he organized. The Four Gospels According to Joseph Smith details the words he added and revised. The text is made available for those who have an interest in how Joseph Smith produced his own version of the four gospels.
