There's a promotion for some of my books going on right now. The Kindle versions are only 4.99 through next Monday.
A Man that Can Translate: Joseph Smith and the Nephite Interpreters, which explains the evidence that Joseph Smith actually translated the plates with the Urim and Thummim. It includes a new, detailed analysis of the Original and Printer's manuscript, together with other evidence, to corroborate what Joseph and Oliver always said about the translation.
The book also proposes an explanation for why David Whitmer, Emma Smith, and others who believed in the divinity of the Book of Mormon related the stone-in-the-hat narrative.
Between these Hills: A case for the New York Cumorah discusses the extrinsic, scientific evidence that corroborates the teachings of the prophets about the New York Cumorah. Far too many Latter-day Saints have rejected the New York Cumorah because of misinformation about this evidence, combined with interpretations of the text designed to justify the Mesoamerican/two-Cumorahs theory.
It's refreshing to see a new perspective with evidence that vindicates the teachings of the prophets and reaffirms the divine authenticity of the Book of Mormon.
In addition to a faithful presentation of the early events of the Restoration, the grandparents explain concepts of missionary and temple work, as well as the process of establishing Zion throughout the world.
References for further study are included at the end of the book, including links to the Joseph Smith Papers and other sources.
BTW, recently the Lemurs book was #13 on the Amazon list of bestselling new LDS releases on Kindle. It's available in French and Spanish as well as English.
Printed editions are available at Costco and Deseret Book stores throughout Utah, Idaho and Arizona.
