Abstract

This article is a response to Reverend F. S. Spalding’s pamphlet Joseph Smith, Jr., as a Translator. Spalding attacks the Book of Mormon by testing the translation of the book of Abraham, saying that the validity of the Book of Mormon rests upon the correct translation of the book of Abraham. The author warns that the opinions of the scholars contacted are merely opinions and premature as well.
