“The Lost book of Abraham documentary not only gets the facts right with regard to this story, but tells this fascinating tale in an utterly captivating and professional way.  The producers also obviously took tremendous care in writing the script so as not to unduly offend the LDS people.  I just cannot recommend this documentary more highly.”
