Introduction to the current issue, including editor’s picks. Peterson argues that just as there is not sufficient evidence to prove the authenticity of the Book of Mormon, neither is there sufficient evidence to prove the falsity of it. He discusses common theories explaining Joseph Smith’s fraud and then explains the invalidity of such theories.
