REVIEWING THE REVIEW: VOL. 19, ISS. 1 (2007)


Overview

Although this issue contains a substantial number of articles/reviews (20), it’s overall number of pages is more comparable to the thin vol. 18/2 than the thick 18/1 and other previous issues. Nonetheless, this issue offers a wide variety of quality reading material for those interested in Mormon Studies. Topics include, automatic writing and the translation of the Book of Mormon, Native American legends and the Book of Mormon, reformed Egyptian, sacred writing on metal plates, Joseph Smith and early Mormon history, theology, the tensions of new religious movements with the mainstream, a scholarly exchange on the Israel’s divine council, the great apostasy, the Book of Abraham, and Mormon Studies itself.
