Review of Books on the Book of Mormon Vol. 1 (1989)

Peterson, Daniel C. “Introduction.” Review of Books on the Book of Mormon 1 (1989): Article 1.

President Ezra Taft Benson's call to emphasize the Book of Mormon is reflected in the effort of the Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies to promote the study of this book of scripture. The Review is founded on the deeply held belief that the Book of Mormon has immense value to both the Church and the world. The reviewers look at publications, both positive and negative, that deal with the Book of Mormon.

Clark, John E. “A Key for Evaluating Nephite Geographies.” Review of Books on the Book of Mormon 1 (1989): Article 7.

Review of Deciphering the Geography of the Book of Mormon (1988), by F. Richard Hauck.

The first question in dealing with Book of Mormon geography should be whether the geography fits the facts of the Book of Mormon. Clark reconstructs an elemental geography and examines internal clues for distances between locations and the surrounding terrain. To evaluate geographies, Clark summarizes ten simple points having to do with the narrow neck of land, the coastlines, the wildernesses, the valleys, the rivers, a lake, and the relative locations of Zarahemla, Bountiful, Nephi, and Cumorah. Using these criteria, he evaluates the Sorenson and Hauck proposed geographies.

Midgley, Louis. “Prophetic Messages or Dogmatic Theology? Commenting on the Book of Mormon: A Review Essay.” Review of Books on the Book of Mormon 1 (1989): Article 12.

Review of Doctrinal Commentary on the Book of Mormon, Volume I: First and Second Nephi (1987), and Volume II: Jacob through Mosiah (1988), by Joseph Fielding McConkie and Robert L. Millet.

The faith of the Nephites and the language of the Book of Mormon tends to be harmonized with certain contemporary statements about Mormon beliefs. The Book of Mormon should be more than a resource for theology. Rather than seeking confimation for what we already know, we should search for the meaning and message of the text.

Compton, Todd M. “Hugh Nibley, Lehi in the Desert, The World of the Jaredites, There Were Jaredites; An Approach to the Book of Mormon; and Since Cumorah.” Review of Books on the Book of Mormon 1 (1989): 114-118.

Since 1989, the Review of Books on the Book of Mormon has published review essays to help serious readers make informed choices and judgments about books and other publications on topics related to the Latter-day Saint religious tradition. It has also published substantial freestanding essays that made further contributions to the field of Mormon studies. In 1996, the journal changed its name to the FARMS Review with Volume 8, No 1.

Review of Books on the Book of Mormon Vol. 2 (1990)

Rust, Richard Dilworth. “Annual FARMS Lecture: The Book of mormon, Designed for Our Day.” In Review of Books on the Book of Mormon 2 (1990): Article 0.

Rust, in the third annual FARMS Book of Mormon lecture delivered on 27 February 1990, examin3ed literary aspects of the book that develop the primary purposes set out on the title page. He discussed the elements characteristic of an epic that will allow modern-day Lamanites to trust in the Lord's deliverance and detailed literary (especially poetic) presentations of the covenants in the Book of Mormon. Literary elements combine with the influence of the Spirit to testify of the purposes of the Book of Mormon.

Peterson, Daniel C. “Editor's Introduction: By What Measure Shall We Mete?” Review of Books on the Book of Mormon 2 (1990): Article 1.

Peterson discusses the growth of the Mormon religion and scholarly indifference toward that growth. He discusses the power of presuppositions and the variance of opinions, using the Qur'an as a case study. The orignality, literary merit, and intrinsic merit of the Book of Mormon increase our appreciation for that book.

Peterson, Daniel C. “Peter Bartley, Mormonism: The Prophet, the Book and the Cult.” Review of Books on the Book of Mormon 2 (1990): Article 5.

Review of Mormonism: The Prophet, The Book and the Cult (1989), by Peter Bartley. Bartley attacks Mormonism and its sacred book, the Book of Mormon, which is not surprising when one notes the anti-Mormon sources he cosulted. Rigorous and well-grounded arguments are lacking, and sweepingly dogmatic assertions dominate. He faults the Book of Mormon on various claims as well as on stylistic grounds--he asserts that it appears to be written entirely by one person. This publication represents just one more anti-Mormon book.

Christenson, Allen J. “Maya Harvest Festivals and the Book of Mormon: Annual FARMS Lecture.” In Review of Books on the Book of Mormon 3 (1991): Article 0.

Christenson, in the annual FARMS lecture deliverd on 27 February 1991, examined the Maya New Year's harvest festival, perhaps the most important public festival of the year. The festival coincided with the main corn harvest in mid-November and served as the New Year's Day of the solar calendar, when kingship was renewed. Christenson gave particular attention to the symbolic treatments of the evil god Mam; the ritual descent of the king, as representative of the god of life and resurrection, into the underworld; the king's ritual conflict with and defeat of the lords of the underworld (and of death); and the king's triumphat return or resurrection. The Maya used the image of the tree of life in connection with the atonement and resurrection.

Graham, Daniel W. and James L. Siebach. “Philosophy and Early Christianity.” FARMS Review of Books 11, no. 2 (1999): Article 6.

The early church was unable to continue once the apostles had departed. Bishops were only local officials and could not speak for the entire church. Beginning with the later second century, philosophy plays an increasingly important role in the church—this appears to be an effect rather than a cause of the apostasy.

Paulsen, David L. and R. Dennis Potter. “How Deep the Chasm? A Reply to Owen and Mosser's Review.” FARMS Review of Books 11, no. 2 (1999): Article 7.

In exploring the divide between Latter-day Saints and Evangelicals, Paulsen and Potter reply to Owen and Mosser on issues of open canon, continuing revelation, biblical enerrancy, divine finitude, divine embodiment, deification, the Trinity or Godhead, soteriology and anthropology, and postmortem salvation.

Cook, Roger D. “How Deep the Platonism? A Review of Owen and Mosser's Appendix: Hellenism, Greek Philosophy, and the Creedal “Straightjacket” of Christian Orthodoxy.” FARMS Review of Books 11, no. 2 (1999): Article 8.

Cook addresses the following issues raised by Owen and Mosser: Did Greek philosophy cause an apostasy in the early Christian church? How deeply Hellenized were the early Jewish converts of Christianity? Philosphy and the Hellenization of Christianity, and Early Judaic and Christian beliefs concerning God and theosis.

Peterson, Daniel C. “Afterword.” FARMS Review of Books 11, no. 2 (1999): Article 9.

In response to the articles in this issue, Peterson notes that Latter-day Saints do not extend themselves to expose and attack other faiths. He further discusses, among other things, an open canon and continuing revelation, salvation as outlined in the scriptures, the ordinances of the gospel, revelation following the incarnation and resurrection of Christ, the biblical canon, inerrancy, biblical texts, the Book of Abraham, and the nature of God.

Peterson, Daniel C. “Editor's Introduction: American Apocrypha?” FARMS Review of Books 13, no. 1 (2001): Article 2.

Introduction to the current issue, including editor's picks. Peterson surmises what the assumptions of the forthcoming book American Apocrypha will be. The statements of the Book of Mormon witnesses must be taken seriously, and the work of Royal Skousen reveals a stunningly consistent, systematic, and complex book. Keith Norman's dissertation on deification and Jordan Vajda's master's thesis on divinization note parallels with early doctrines of theosis. Joseph Smith's mission consisted of making clear that which was formerly hidden.
