This seven-part series provides a clear overview of what the Book of Mormon is, its contents, how it came to be published, its likely sources and composition, what it teaches, and how Mormons defend it, along with a selective bibliography of significant books about the Book of Mormon.
This new edition of the Book of Mormon presents the entire text in readable, searchable format, using the 1830 (first) edition as the base text, with corrections to printer’s errors, spelling inconsistencies, and the like. Differences between the 1830 edition and the two handwritten manuscripts have been taken into consideration. The pages listed here give both the original 1830 chapter numbers (in Roman numerals) and the contemporary chapter numbers. The Book of Mormon Study Text is the first critical edition of the Book of Mormon produced by a non-Mormon scholar, IRR’s executive director Robert M. Bowman Jr.
A survey and critique of the main lines of evidence for the human origin of the Book of Mormon proposed by Mormon Historian and General Authority Brigham H. Roberts in an unpublished paper done in the early 1920s.
