Comments The Prophetic Book of Mormon

  • The Thousander Club

    I recently completed the Book of Mormon again, as well as an additional reflection on that most remarkable and unique book. My writing and meditations, however, barely compare to Nibley's The Prophetic Book of Mormon. Admittedly Nibley's work was written and compiled over many years, but it shows how nearly inexhaustible the conversation can be regarding one of the most controversial and baffling religious texts ever written. The Prophetic Book of Mormon is the fourth volume of Nibley's Collecte [...]

    I first started reading Hugh Nibley's books in the mid-90's while on my mission, and I LOVED them. I would tear through them in a few days and then immediately re-read my favorite sections. Nibley was brilliant and knew so much about the ancient world, and his arguments made so much sense and showed such clear parallels between old civilizations and those depicted in the Book of Mormon, and his writing style was snappy and engaging. It's been at least 10 years since I read a book by Nibley, and [...]

    Although Nibley has a great sense of humor, and is extremely well-read in a number of languages, when he starts talking about proof for Mormon scripture he uses shoddy scholarship.To understand Nibley's approach to scholarship, see:Salmon, Douglas F. "Parallelomania and the Study of Latter-day Scripture: Confirmation, Coincidence, or the Collective Subconscious? Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought 33, no. 2 (Summer 2000): 129-156.

    One of his best--read it again this year. It has a lot of great stuff on the anti-Book of Mormon projects in the past, and I must say that working with BYU as an undergrad in the same area, no one has really advanced much (from the apostate/anti position)from those original arguments. Anti-Joseph Smith and anti-Mormon stuff is simply the same story over again--the ideas of which have been very suspect and exposed by many authors (more than just Nibley), but no one seems to be listening.

    If you have to choose between this book and Nibley's An Approach to the Book of Mormon, and you want a fuller version of the information and thinking than is found in the latter, choose this one. A thought-provoking and inspiring accompaniment to your study of the Book of Mormon, with Nibley in excellent, intelligent (that's an understatement), witty, and testimony-bearing and enhancing form, as always.

  • Max Evans

    This was the first Nibley book that I read of the series. I read it in the early 80's during college and it really opened my eyes to ways that the Book of Mormon could, and should (?) be read. I then read all of the books in the Nibley series that were around at that time and would wait for the next to come out and immediately buy the new ones.

  • Ryan Daley

    Nibley's books all pretty much are compiled from various essays around a given topics over the course of his career. As such his books are generally okay with strong hits and a few weak misses in each book. I actually enjoy his books more than a should - but I have to give this one a better score as there are many more hits in this collection than usual.

  • Mark

    Nibley is typically recognized as a difficult-to-read author. This book does little to dispell the perception. Nonetheless, Nibley does his best to substantiate and justify one's belief that The Book of Mormon is of Divine origin. He does his typical excellent work, here. Highly recommended!!

  • Callie

    A must read for people interested in deep doctrine combined with unique secular knowledge regarding the people of the Book of Mormon and the Native Americans. It is a book compiled of essays so you can space out the reading. Very valuable.

  • Gavin

    Great book!

  • Ruth

    one of the greatest LDS scholars--interesting insights

  • Purple Wimple

    I devoured this one while a missionary in Riga.
