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.

Stocking stuffers and Church history

The MormonBookReviews youtube channel suggested Lemurs, Chameleons and Golden Plates as a stocking stuffer.


I heartily agree! Thank you, Mormon Book Reviews!

The printed book is available in English at Costco in Idaho, Utah and Arizona, as well as at Deseret Book, Amazon, and Digitalegend, and BookofMormonEvidence

The printed French edition is available only on Amazon.

More descriptions, including sample pages, can be seen here: 


It's a great book for kids, but also for parents and grandparents because the inside back cover includes citations to the Joseph Smith Papers and other original sources for further study.

The book is also available on Kindle in English, Spanish and French. The graphic novel format lets readers view the entire page or one frame at a time, which is a cool feature.

The foreign-language editions can be easily given as gifts because you don't need a Kindle to read them. The Kindle app can be installed free on every smart phone, tablet and computer.

For people living outside the US, you can buy the books from your local country's Amazon site.

This is a cool way for returned missionaries to send gifts to people they have met on their missions. 

For example, if you live in France, or want to buy a copy for someone who lives in France, go to https://www.amazon.fr/ and search, or go to this link:


If you live in Mexico, or want to buy a copy for someone who lives in Mexico, go to 


Other languages will be available in the next few months.


I have a blog dedicated to LDS church history where I post details about little-known events. Recently I posted comments about John Whitmer's testimony about the translation. He corroborated what Joseph and Oliver said, contrary to the SITH-sayers (then and now).
