Nibley, Hugh W. “Nobody to Blame.” Preliminary Report. Provo, UT: Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies, August 3, 1960.
Display Abstract  Display Keywords

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.

Nibley, Hugh W. “The Early Christian Church in the Light of Some Newly Discovered Papyri from Egypt.” Preliminary Report. Provo, UT: Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies, 1964.
Display Abstract  Display Keywords

Hugh Nibley begins by showing the interrelatedness of ancient records, regardless of their origin, a phenomenon called “pattemism.” He proposes that Joseph Smith presented the world with authentic ancient records. The Prophet brought forth many of the same concepts that are found in ancient temple libraries, such as the council in heaven during the premortal period, the casting out of Satan, the doctrine of the “two ways,” the fallen nature of mankind, and the need for a redeemer. Accompanying the doctrines is a body of rites or ordinances, and Nibley gives special attention to the Nag Hammadi documents.

Goff, Alan. “Boats, Beginnings, and Repetitions.” Journal of Book of Mormon Studies 1, no. 1 (1992): 67-84.
Display Abstract  Display Keywords

Ancient texts are too often approached using modern assumptions. Among those assumptions obstructing an understanding of ancient texts is the modern emphasis on originality and on writing as intellectual property. Ancient writers relished repetition—stories that were repeated in succeeding generations—over originality. The Bible is full of repeated or allusive stories, and the Book of Mormon often reinscribes this biblical emphasis on repetition. One such biblical reverberation in the Book of Mormon is Nephi’s ocean voyage, which evokes biblical stories of origination: creation, deluge, and exodus. These three stories of beginnings are carefully alluded to in Nephi’s own foundational story, exactly as we would expect to find in an ancient Hebraic text.

Robison, Lindon J. “Economic Insights from the Book of Mormon.” Journal of Book of Mormon Studies 1, no. 1 (1992): 35-53.
Display Abstract  Display Keywords

Economic systems are distinguished by their emphasis on equity and efficiency. Market controls are justified because of the need for equity. Free markets are justified because of the need for private incentives and efficiency. Most countries of the world today have adopted a combination of controls and free-market incentives. The Book of Mormon teaches that only through caring can equity and efficiency be simultaneously achieved.
