Mormon Discussion Podcast sits down with LDS author Mark Staker and discusses the Church’s rich history in Kirtland.  Elsie Johnson’s healing, Kirtland Safety Society Bank, Apostasy, and much much more.

Was Joseph Smith the impetus behind the Kirtland bank failure or can others really bare the blunt of blame?

Did he really heal Elsie Johnson by giving her a “Priesthood Blessing”?

Elder Marlin Jensen acknoweldged that the Church is seeing an apostasy in the church as big as has been seen since Kirtland….. so how big was that “Kirtland Apostasy”?
