Truman G. Madsen, as guest editor of this special Institute of Mormon Studies issue, prefaces the fascinating research of many notable scholars on the coming forth of the Book of Mormon. In "The Anthon Transcript," Stanley B. Kimball probes beyond the folklore surrounding Martin Harris' famed encounter with Professor Charles Anthon. Dean C. Jessee describes in detail the acquisition and preservation of scraps of the original manuscript of the Book of Mormon. Focusing on New York, Richard Lloyd Anderson reveals the vindictive biases of some of Joseph Smith's first critics in an attempt to reappraise the Prophet's reputation.
