Sidney Rigdon: A Portrait of Religious Excess
|Author||Richard S. Van Wagoner|
The biography was recognized in reviews as the most comprehensive biography of Rigdon produced. The book won awards from the Mormon History Association and the John Whitmer Historical Association but was criticized by Mormon apologists as "defective" and one that "still leaves more to be desired".
