"My Faves" on the Book of Mormon - Richard Bushman

In this abbreviated edition of the "My Faves" series, Richard Bushman sent his list of faves along, saying: "I like the following list of articles not because they are the best articles or because I necessarily agree with them, but because they are provocative."


1. Adam S. Miller, “Messianic History: Walter Benjamin and the Book of Mormon,” in James M. McLaughlan and Loyd Ericson, eds., Discourses in Mormon Theology: Philosophical and Theological Possibilities (Salt Lake City: Greg Kofford Books, 2007), 227-246.

2. Blake Ostler, “The Book of Mormon as a Modern Expansion of an Ancient Source,” Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Spring 1987: 66-123.

3. Hugh Nibley, "An Auspicious Beginning," An Approach to the Book of Mormon (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Company, 1964), 33-45.

4. Krister Stendahl, "The Sermon on the Mount and Third Nephi," In Reflections on Mormonism, ed. T. Madsen. Provo, Utah, 1978.

5. Royal Skousen, “Translating the Book of Mormon: Evidence from the Original Manuscript,” in Book of Mormon Authorship Revisited, ed. Noel Reynolds (Provo, 1997).

I think Adam Miller is one of the brightest minds in the church, so I'm glad to see Bushman put him and Ostler as #1 & #2 since that is basically where I am too.

Thanks, this makes a nice entry to go with http://mormonmatters.org/2010/05/15/some-members-want-to-openly-support-a-non-historical-view-of-the-book-of-mormon/ -- I've noted it in the comments there.
