Abstract

This series defends the Book of Mormon against “current calumny.” Gibson cites reasons why God’s communications are not limited to the Bible, and explains why the plates should not be available for inspection. He also shows the harmony between the Book of Mormon and the Bible, using many prooftexts, including Zechariah 10:7-11, Hosea 11:9, and Isaiah 28, and discusses archaeological evidence. The first part defends the doctrine of continuing revelation.
