|Title||Editor's Introduction: American Apocrypha?|
|Publication Type||Journal Article|
|Year of Publication||2001|
|Authors||Peterson, Daniel C.|
|Journal||FARMS Review of Books|
Introduction to the current issue, including editor’s picks. Peterson surmises what the assumptions of the forthcoming book American Apocrypha will be. The statements of the Book of Mormon witnesses must be taken seriously, and the work of Royal Skousen reveals a stunningly consistent, systematic, and complex book. Keith Norman’s dissertation on deification and Jordan Vajda’s master’s thesis on divinization note parallels with early doctrines of theosis. Joseph Smith’s mission consisted of making clear that which was formerly hidden.
