This book makes public the results of a project sponsored by the Mormon Theology Seminar. The question driving the papers collected in this volume is the following: How does the Book of Mormon prophet Nephi read, rework, and repurpose the writings of the biblical prophet Isaiah? Each essay in this volume addresses an aspect of the complex relationship between Nephi and Isaiah, ranging from the question of what is at stake when one prophet retools the work of another to the question of how Nephi uses the words of Isaiah to outline the significance of the sealed gold plates to which he contribut

Ever since its appearance in 1830, the Book of Mormon has been a contentious volume. Claimed by millions of Latter Day Saints to be a record of the ancient Israelites and their journeys in the Americas, this volume has earned its place amongst the classics of apocryphal biblical literature. Here is reprinted the original 1830 edition of this revered text, uncorrected, undoctored, and unimproved. It is an important re-source for comparison with the current "official" edition published by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. At once scandalous and devotional, the Book of Mormon conti

Englishwoman Fanny Stenhouse arrived in Utah in 1857 with her husband, newspaperman T.B.H. Stenhouse. Mr. Stenhouse was a missionary and elder of the Mormon Church and a practicing polygamist. Fanny's unvarnished, "true history by a real Mormon woman" was a sensational expose of Mormonism and a plea for women to be freed from the institution of multiple marriage. In her sympathetic preface, Harriet Beecher Stowe says, "Let every happy wife and mother who reads these lines give her sympathy, prayers, and efforts to free her sisters from this degrading bondage."

This book is based on a novel idea: that Mormons do theology. Doing theology isdifferent from weighing history, deciding doctrine, or inspiring devotion. Theology speculates. It experiments with questions and advances hypotheses. It tests new angles and pulls loose threads. It reads old texts in careful and creative ways. Theology, in this sense, is not an institutional practice. It has no force beyond the charity it demonstrates and it decides no questions beyond what the Brethren have settled. It is the work of individuals who, for its own sake, want to see what ideas about Mormonism may, at

The Amish have a casino on the Las Vegas Strip (no electricity, of course); the Mormon Underground rescues people from the clutches of the federal government; the Pentecostals have joined the Aryan Nation ("they were the only church that had guns"). The United States has devolved into a feudal society; epidemics rage unchecked due to the collapse of the health system; ecoterrorists are bent on destroying every landmark in the book "1,001 Must-See Sites in North America"; the population is ruled by conspiracy theories. America during the apocalypse is, in short, only a bit more twisted than it
