Considered, even today, one of the smartest men that ever lived. Scientist, educator, and Apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Taught College-level Latin at the age of eighteen, he was called by the First Presidency to write "Jesus the Christ," and presented to the First Presidency each week what would be considered one of the greatest works in the history of this Church.
It was only inevitable that he was later called to the Apostleship.
