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.

An important podcast on Gospel Tangents

In the pursuit of clarity, charity and understanding, my co-author, Jim Lucas, and I did an extended interview with Gospel Tangents.

Here's the summary:

LDS Historians believe Joseph Smith used a seer stone to translate the Book of Mormon, but authors Jim Lucas and Jonathan Neville are pushing back against that theory. The two lawyers argue that the traditional story that Joseph used the Urim & Thummim to translate is more accurate, and they have written a new book, "By Means of the Urim & Thummim" to lay out their arguments.

The first of 6 parts dropped today.



I did another interview last week that will be posted soon, and I have two more scheduled this week. These all involve different topic and they reach different audiences, so be sure to share/comment.
