A hundred years ago, the Book of Mormon was regarded by the scholarly world as an odd text that simply did not fit their understanding of the ancient world Since that time, however, numerous ancient records have come to light, including the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi texts These discoveries have forced scholars to change their views of history, and they place tA hundred years ago, the Book of Mormon was regarded by the scholarly world as an odd text that simply did not fit their understanding of the ancient world Since that time, however, numerous ancient records have come to light, including the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi texts These discoveries have forced scholars to change their views of history, and they place the Book of Mormon in a new light as well.That is why respected Latter day Saint scholar Hugh Nibley wrote Since Cumorah, a brilliant literary, theological, and historical evaluation of the Book of Mormon as an ancient book Drawing upon a multitude of Hebrew, Coptic, and early Christian texts, Dr Nibley looks at both the background and the text of the Book of Mormon He compares the Book of Mormon with the Bible, the Apocrypha, and the records of the primitive church and related or apostate groups He examines its philologically that is, he examines its language and literature and their relationship He deals with a number of scientific questions that it poses Historically, he covers major events, such as the great earthquake prophetic figures, such as Zenos and wars, especially during the military career of Moroni Finally, he discusses the Book of Mormon as prophecy its themes, warnings, and promises.Since Cumorah has become, since its first printing, a standard in Book of Mormon scholarship In this new edition, the text and notes have been checked and reedited, and the editors have restored substantial blocks of material published in the magazine version of this work but not included in the first edition of the book.Although Dr Nibley stresses that our knowledge of the ancient world will remain forever tentative, he shows that the book once ridiculed by scholars has a right to be taken seriously and to be reevaluated in light of the documents discovered since the publication of the Book of Mormon.

Comments Since Cumorah

  • Daniel Michener

    Remarkable This remarkable work provides insight to the believer and challenges the unbeliever.The information provided is well worth the effort and should stir anyone with a serious question about the Book of Mormon to search further.

    Since Cumorah is a work of high-density scholarship that mostly examines what has been learned in recent Near Eastern studies that bears upon The Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ. (Keep in mind, "recent" is, for this book, the 1960s.) The authenticity of the Book of Mormon is approached from many different angles, with very interesting results. Nibley's final chapter, Momentary Conclusion, impresses me as a masterpiece. Beyond all his facts and authoritative citations, the Book [...]

    It's weird reading a collection of articles in book form, but the coherent thread is that the articles discuss the light shed on the Book of Mormon's authenticity by the discoveries of ancient texts since the Book of Mormon came to light. Nibley also discusses the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Qumran codexes, and other ancient records and discusses whether they discredit or confirm the Mormon conception of primitive Christianity. He makes many good points in defense of the Book of Mormon as an authentic [...]


  • Marc Hutchison

    This book is a compilation of magazine articles from the Mormon Church's magazine "The Improvement Era", originally published in the early 1960's. The subject is The Book of Mormon in the light of ancient manuscripts published since 1830, when the Book of Mormon was published. It's not an easy read, but a rewarding one. Recommended for anyone who wants a fresh look at this subject.


  • Ryan Daley

    Surprisingly better than I expected. This seventh volume of his collected works is more interesting and personally applicable than the previous six volumes. Whereas in the other six previous volumes there are rich nuggets worth the dig - this is the first volume that I felt a consistent flow of interest in. I would put this as maybe even a great place to start with good old nibbles!


  • Don Gubler

    A bit too apologetic.


  • Jarad

    A pretty scholarly work, sometimes repetitious but worth the effort once in your life.


  • Richard Downey

    I love Nibley. His books are dense and sometimes hard to read, but If you ever had a class from him, or sat in on a lecture, his books take on a whole new dimension.


  • Jayson
