Joseph and Hyrum Leading as One
Religious Studies Center, BYU
The authors discuss the concept of shared leadership in regards to the leaders of the Mormon Restoration during the 1800s. While Joseph was the President of the restored Church, Hyrum Smith played an important role in providing leadership for the Church as well. This shared leadership between the two brothers enabled both to fulfill several different leadership roles as defined by the authors.
