Storyline

Joshua Steed returns to Missouri a wealthy man with a beautiful wife; however, the past has a way of catching up. Soon Joshua is tangled in a web of rumors, deception and betrayal that threatens to tear his family apart. Back in Kirtland, financial trouble riddles the foundations of the fledgling Church causing a division, and questioning of the Prophet Joseph Smith's divine calling. Has he lost his prophetic gift? Hundreds of Saints immigrate to Missouri, where Governor Boggs raises an army - with Joshua at its head - to address the "Mormon Problem." When the militia receives orders to attack the Mormon settlement, only Joshua can save his family from the gathering mob. Written by Excel Entertainment Group

Goofs

Non-Mormons in western Missouri are shown as wearing eastern clothing and living in frame homes. Missouri settlers in the 1830s, men and women alike, wore buckskins and lived in cabins. In fact, one of the things they disliked about Mormons was their clothing and houses, which to the "gentiles" represented an incursion of what they had gone west to get away from. See more »

Moving Conclusion to Series
23 November 2006 | by (Salt Lake City) – See all my reviews

"The Work & the Glory: A House Divided" is a wonderful conclusion to the three films based on Gerald Lund's inspiring set of books. While one could wish that the series would continue, it is nice to have the the three films made conclude at a strong point for the fictional Steed family depicted. The three parts make for a marvelous canvas on which to paint a portrait of a good family torn apart by the forth-coming of the restoration of Christ's Church. This film shows the necessity of forgiveness and its power in healing. As in the other films, the characterization of Joseph Smith and other historical figures is outstanding. Well worth seeing in a theatre--and certainly a great DVD to own! Too bad that EXCEL didn't provide a commentary track for this one.
