Several academic reviews of In Heaven

Laurie Maffly-Kipp, in “Odysseus in the Underworld,” terms In Heaven “remarkably deft work of scholarship” that “offers a rich and compelling view of early Mormonism.”

Jan Shipps describes the “sustained and learned argument” in the book that “provides the best explanation of Mormon temple worship ever published” in her review in Journal of American History.

Susanna Morrill describes In Heaven as a “clearly written and brilliantly conceived work” in her review in Reviews in American History.
