Here is a frank discussion of current issues occupying historians of Mormon origins. The author is a recently-retired LDS Institute director. He looks at parallels to Mormon thought and lends a critical eye to claims from all sides. In particular, he considers the Book of Abraham, E. T A. Hoffman, the Eleven Witnesses, the First Vision, priesthood, and the reliability of spiritual feelings as a guide to historical truth. This is a must-read for historians and beginners alike.
