REVIEWING THE REVIEW: VOL. 17, ISS. 2 (2005)

Overview
            Despite only having 13 essays/reviews (counting the Editor’s Introduction), this issue stretches across more than 500 pages (again, counting the Ed. Intro.). Naturally, that means this volume featured some very long articles, including one that was more than 130 pages!
            Among the contents of this issue one will find topics discussing the Spaulding theory, the Book of Mormon translation manuscripts and eyewitnesses, sectarian anti-Mormon tactics, the Arabian setting for the early part of the Book of Mormon, in-depth analysis of LDS and Christian creation theology, Joseph Smith, psychohistory, positivistic ideology, and Book of Mormon literary forms, comparisons with Mormons and Jews, secular anti-Mormonism, the JST manuscripts, and the Joseph Smith Papyri. Thus, as usual, this issue provides an array of topics, one of which is bound to interest you.
