Although it should be evident that we tend to favor certain theories over others when it comes to explaining the nature and translation of the Book of Abraham [and the Book of Mormon], we do not presume to impose our understanding on others as an article of faith. We are happy to acknowledge that Latter-day Saints can in good faith come to different conclusions about the nature of this book of scripture and “pursue a faithful study of the Book of Abraham [and the Book of Mormon] from different backgrounds and approaches.” In fact, we welcome these different approaches and encourage a multitude of voices to contribute to the conversation.
