9781606410530: Leap of Faith: Confronting the Origins of the Book of Mormon

If the claims of Latter- day Saints about the origin of the Book of Mormon are true, then the book is genuine scripture. But if it s an invention of human origin in short, a forgery the Church s claim to be the only true church must be called into question. Surprisingly, very few writers, inside the Church or outside, have made a thorough examination of claims that the book is a forgery. In a book of interest to those of other faiths as well as to Latter- day Saints, Senator Bob Bennett reviews such claims. While he admits to writing as a believer, he identifies four objective tests that can be applied to help anyone determine if the book is what it claims to be: internal consistency, external evidence, questions of motive, and relevance. This compellingly written work offers a unique perspective about a book beloved by tens of millions. It is made even more interesting by the author s experiences working for the reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes, the victim of more than one attempted forgery.
