The productive Neal Rappleye has written another excellent mini-essay on the methodological and interpretative issues related Jenkins claims about ancient BOM studies. Read it here.
He also notes the forthcoming publication next month of Brant Gardner’s new book Traditions of the Fathers: The Book of Mormon as History. Knowing Gardner’s fine work, I am confident this will be a “must read” on the issue of the historicity of the BOM.
Alas, given his track record, I am quite confident that Prof. Jenkins won’t.
