Rumble, Leslie. “The Book of Mormon.” Homiletic and Pastoral Review 60 (January 1960): 338-45.
Display Abstract  

A polemical article against the Book of Mormon. Author considers numerous environmental influences Joseph Smith could have drawn upon: Ethan Smith’s View of the Hebrews, plagiarized biblical passages, anti-Catholic influences, anti-Masonry, revival language, Westminster Confession, and others. He appeals to the “automatic unity” theory in order to explain the speed of composition of the Book of Mormon. He alleges that Book of Mormon Isaiah passages quote errors in the King James translation of the Old Testament. He considers anachronistic the assertion that steel, the compass, and horses were known in Book of Mormon times.

One year following the publication of the Book of Mormon, a shift of emphasis had taken place among the Latter-day Saints.

Display Abstract  Display Keywords

This article states that English, the language of translation employed by Joseph Smith, retains the original thought, personal writing styles, distinctive patterns, and unique phraseology belonging to each of the ancient writers and prophets of the Book of Mormon. Barker also discusses the language of the gold plates, which has been described as being a combination of the “learning of the Jews and the language of the Egyptians” (1 Nephi 12), and as “reformed Egyptian” (Mormon 9:32). Too little is known about the characters of reformed Egyptian, which had been “altered” by the Nephites (Mormon 9:32).

In this letter to a BYU graduate student, Hugh Nibley advocates the program of the school of the prophets as a way to meet the challenges of academia. He explores four obvious ways of meeting the challenges of the learned world: ignoring them, running away from them, agreeing with them, or meeting the opposition on their own grounds.

While Anthon was a known Egyptian scholar of the period, he nonetheless lacked sufficient knowledge to vouch for the accurate translation of the characters.

Display Abstract  Display Keywords

This article is a testimony of the Book of Mormon from the point of view of a successful and professional writer, Helen Hinckley Jones. In order to write an excellent book, it takes tremendous research, painstaking effort to build distinct characters, a complex form, a unique style of writing, and an appropriate theme, followed by laborious retracing, redoing, and revising. Joseph Smith had neither the talent nor the time to author the Book of Mormon. Jones concludes that Joseph Smith “was reading the Book of Mormon, not writing it.”

Willard Richards was touched by the Lord after reading the entire Book of Mormon twice in just ten days. Parley Pratt read the Book of Mormon straight through, non-stop, day and night, and the Spirit of the Lord came upon him and he knew it was true.

Recent finds have renewed consideration of the possibility of transoceanic crossings and Old World infiuence in the New World in pre-Columbian times. A new theory is emerging that looks at three possibilities: the infiuence of the Old World via the Bering Strait, independent origins, and transoceanic crossings.

Burrell, Wanda Lee, and Maurice C. Lyon. Mormonism. London: Church Book Room Press, 1961.
Display Abstract  

A polemical work that sets forth claims against Mormonism and its doctrines. The account of the angel and his gold plates is of questionable authenticity since the plates themselves are not available for inspection. Charles Anthon denied the Mormon version of the Martin Harris incident, and Harris must have lied or exaggerated greatly. There is no archaeological evidence for the Book of Mormon. It attributes King James English to people who lived thousands of years ago, and moreover it attributes Christian ideas and phrases to people who lived long before Christ’s coming in the flesh. The testimony of the Book of Mormon witnesses is also dismissed as worthless.

Display Abstract  

Notes briefly some problems he sees with the Book of Mormon and archaeology: the horse did not exist in Mesoamerica contemporaneously with the Nephites; natives with white skin and beards migrated in the Paleo- Mesolithic period; there are no remains of the Middle-Eastern seeds the Nephites planted (1 Nephi 18:25); many aspects of Nephite culture are not evidenced by archaeology.

Display Abstract  

In the beginning Joseph Smith patterned Mormonism after six groups: Roman Catholicism, Campbell’s teachings, the Pharisees, Masonry, Islam, and Rosicrucianism. Smith’s claims to have translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God have no foundation. LDS doctrines and practices have changed.

This article argues that various Indian traditions and practices suggest that Jesus Christ visited the American continent, as the Book of Mormon indicates.

This article states that experiencing soul satisfying circumstances is better when one is not alone. Sharing such experiences with loved ones increases the satisfaction, as is exemplified in the Book of Mormon. Examples of such phenomena include Lehi, who tastes of the fruit of the Tree of Life and desires to share; Enos, who prays for his brethren; and the sons of Mosiah and Alma, who shared their experiences as missionaries following their conversion.

Display Abstract  

Book of Mormon archaeology presents many problems: the location of Book of Mormon lands is unknown; many researchers are not qualified and have made serious mistakes; some use writings that support LDS theology and ignore unsupportive writings. There is a need to test theories carefully and slowly create a basis of tested and proven evidence to support the Book of Mormon.

Display Abstract  

Dahl reviews many of the major works of numerous authors who between 1800 and 1840 were using archaeology and conjecture to explain the origins of the mound-builders. He compares these works to Bryant’s poems “The Prairies” and “Thanatopsies” Concerning the Book of Mormon, Dahl writes that it is “certainly the most influential of all Mound-Builder literature,” and that “whether one wishes to accept it as divinely inspired or as the work of Joseph Smith, it fits exactly into the tradition”

Nibley, Hugh W. “The Passing of the Church: Forty Variations on an Unpopular Theme.” Church History 30, no. 2, June 1961. 131–54.
Display Abstract  

Nibley sets out forty arguments for the apostasy as he examines the expectation of early Christian writers of the fading of the Church. Hans J. Hillerbrand wrote a letter protesting Nibley’s thesis because, among other reasons, of the possibility that, if widely accepted, Nibley’s view would preclude one such as Hillerbrand from continuing to teach what is traditionally known as “Church history.” See Hillerbrand, “The Passing of the Church: Two Comments on a Strange Theme,” Church History 30, no. 3 (December 1961): 481–82; and a response to Hillerbrand by Robert M. Grant, “The Passing of the Church: Comments on Two Comments on a Strange Theme,” Church History 30, no. 3 (December 1961): 482–83.

Display Abstract  Display Keywords

This article argues that, inasmuch as the Book of Mormon is a literal translation from a Hebrew record, one would expect to find the frequent use of Hebraic idiomatic expressions in it. Bramwell provides examples of a number of Hebraisms, such as compound subjects, frequent usage of the conjunction “and,” a limited number of vocabulary words, and the repetitive use of possessive pronouns.

Circulated under the title“Literary Style of the Book of Mormon Insured Accurate Translation.“
The Church News received a letter from an interested non-member of the Church making the inquiry about why the Prophet Joseph Smith, in translating the Book of mormon, did not use contemporary English instead of using the “King James English” as found in the Bible. The Church News forwarded the letter on to Dr. Hugh Nibley, and this is his reply.

A representation of the “tree of life” was found in a carving on a large stone monument in Southern Mexico at the ruin site of Izapa. It was the fifth of carved stone slabs located in the temple courts. The art style is pre-Mayan. It appears to represent two cherubim or Near Eastern-type figures, six figures that surround the tree, and a river of water. Two name glyphs were discovered and translated into the names Lehi and Nephi.

Display Abstract  

A polemical work against Mormonism and Mormon scripture. The author attacks the interpretations of biblical prophecy supporting the Book of Mormon, previously advanced by Orson Pratt, B. H. Roberts, and other Mormon writers. The testimonies of Book of Mormon witnesses are also discussed and dismissed. The writer further alleges the complete lack of historical, scriptural, or archaeological evidence supporting the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon, he asserts, contradicts pagan practices of certain native American peoples and asserts that they bear no relation to descriptions in the Book of Mormon. He asserts a mongoloid rather than a Hebrew origin for these peoples.

In 1954, Hugh Nibley delivered a series of weekly lectures on KSL Radio. The series called “Time Vindicates the Prophets” was given in answer to those who were challenging the right of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to call themselves Christians.

Pearson, Glenn L., and Reid E. Bankhead. A Doctrinal Approach to the Book of Mormon. Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1962.
Display Abstract  

A new method of studying the Book of Mormon is proposed that includes finding some of the more important passages of the Book of Mormon and starting a structured cross-reference system. In the book a series of doctrinal topics are addressed by brief explanations, thought provoking questions, cross references, and a marking system. The goal is to help the user to be more fluent with the scriptures. [C. W.]

Petersen, Mark E. Polynesians Came from America!. Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1962.
Display Abstract  

The great faith of the Polynesian people indicates that they are of the blood of Israel. Evidence that they are descendants of Lehi lies in the structure of their temples, baptismal fonts, stone roadways, and the plant life with origins in North America. The first white men in these islands were greeted with great reverence because of the traditions of the people concerning their white god whose teachings resembled those of Jesus Christ.

Display Abstract  

Chapter 4 is titled “Lost Tribes and the Mormons” Edward King and others of his time held to the theory that the Mesoamerican people were descendants of the “Lost Tribes of Israel” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints denies the Book of Mormon is about the Lost Ten Tribes but asserts that Hebrews of Jerusalem came to America. Parallels between the Book of Mormon and accounts of Ixtilxochitl and Popol Vuh seem to support the Book of Mormon.

Display Abstract  Display Keywords

This series is an apologetic work responding to claims that the Book of Mormon is the product of one man of mediocre ability. The author reports the finds of an analysis comparing the styles of different Book of Mormon writers and concludes that the different writers each have different styles. This supports Joseph Smith’s claim that he translated the work. The second and final part concludes the series.
