Format: Paperback
Reid L. Neilson is Professor of Church History and Doctrine at BYU, and is also the author of The Mormon History Association's Tanner Lectures: The First Twenty Years, Believing History: Latter-day Saint Essays, etc.; Terryl L. Givens is a Professor of English and Religion at the University of Richmond, and is also the author of By the Hand of Mormon: The American Scripture that Launched a New World Religion and The Book of Mormon: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions).

18 of 30 people found the following review helpful By C. Terry on August 24, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Interesting to note chapters by LDS and non-LDS scholars looking at the contributions of a long awaited 19th century prophet. With so much incorrect 'information' placed by those who profess to be Christian but display nothing but hate and ignorance, it is good to have a scholarly work such as this.
