Description

From back cover:

In late 1829, New York printer Abner Cole made public some unauthorized excerpts from the forthcoming Book of Mormon in his Palmyra Reflector, and wondered, “How it will stand the test of criticism, we are not prepared to say, not having as yet examined many of its pages.” For nearly two centuries, scholars have scrutinized the book beyond what Cole could have ever imagined, and few have done so longer or more thoroughly than Earl Wunderli. As his subtitle declares, he endeavors to find out what the Book of Mormon tells us about itself. Whether intended or not, the book reveals quite a lot about itself. It discloses a worldview having to do with assumptions about science, religion, and politics that are fascinating pieces of evidence for anyone trying to get to the heart of who wrote the book.
