Abstract

The author discusses the Book of Mormon within the context of the establishment of the Latter-day kingdom of God, citing Isaiah 29 as a prooftext. He responds to perceived weaknesses in language by writing that “an uninspired man might as well attempt to originally compose the Old and New Testament” as the Book of Mormon.
