long ago ideas

“When we are tired, we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago." - Friedrich Nietzsche. Long ago, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery conquered false claims that the Book of Mormon was fiction or that it came through a stone in a hat. But these old claims have resurfaced in recent years. To conquer them again, we have to return to what Joseph and Oliver taught.

Book version of blog

I've had requests for a book version of this blog, so I converted it to a Word document. So far, it's 298,357 words and 991 pages.

Too big to print, obviously.

So far, there have been 236 posts. (There are many more I haven't published yet.) I've been asked to organize them by subject matter so they're easier to access.

Plus, I speak to a lot of groups that include people who don't use the Internet except for email, facebook, and family history. They don't want to start on blogs, they don't like to click on links, etc. Some people don't use the Internet at all. Some like to read when they're not online, etc.

IOW, I can understand the desire for a book version.

Reviewing the posts has been quite interesting. There's a lot of good material in here that, with some organization and editing, would be valuable to have in another format. Maybe, with some editing, we can reduce it to two books of about 350 pages each. That's the goal.

Stay tuned.

  1. Quite an undertaking, but highly commendable. Anything to get people to read more on Book of Mormon Geography. :)
