Abstract

B.H. Roberts responds to Mr. Bolitho, who attempts to prove the Book of Mormon false by showing that the Book of Mormon dates of Christ’s birth and death do not accord with the Bible. Roberts explains the possible differences between Nephite and Jewish calendrical systems, citing scripture and chronologists.
