B. H. Roberts's Autobiography Gary James Bergera Less than one year before his death in at the age of seventy-six, Brigham H. Roberts began the bittersweet task of composing his autobiog-raphy (which was finally published nearly sixty years later by Signature Books). Known variously as 'biographical notes" and "Life Story,".

      Recently he published Defender of the Faith, a biography of B. H. Roberts, a Mormon intellectual and Church leader at the turn of the century. In this article Madsen introduces B. H. Roberts and presents a synopsis of his rigorous lifetime study of the Book of Mormon. An examination of B. H. Roberts’s Book of Mormon activities, public and private, from when his “problems” study was complete until his death on 27 September , reveals that every week of every month of those eleven years B. H. Roberts was preparing, writing, presenting, and publishing materials on the Book of Mormon.
