I'm pleased to introduce Dr. Gerald Smith for a round of guest posts here at Times & Seasons. He will be sharing a series of posts about his new book, Schooling the Prophet, How the Book of Mormon Influenced Joseph Smith and the Early Restoration (published by BYU Press and the Maxwell Institute.) I was lucky enough to be an early reader for the project, and was really struck by his unique approach to studying the Book of Mormon and how it had shaped the views and beliefs of Joseph Smith.

“For it shall come to pass in that day, that every man shall hear the fullness of the gospel in his own tongue, and in his own language.” D&C 90:11 Introduction This post begins with a simple question: does the Maxwell Institute (formerly FARMS) publish scholarship that treats the Book of Mormon as an ancient text?

You will all be delighted to know that youtube appears to be up and running on BYU campus again. Perhaps in part thanks to this.
UPDATE: It’s blocked again.
Pffffft. Credit Giving FAIL. Try this.
Ah, BYU. Way to take a step toward joining the rest of the world, at least in one simple way.
Har! Great title.
Scott, that can’t be it. Nothing at BYU happens that fast.
Frank, good point. The block/unblock cycle on YouTube at BYU is probably a belated response to the Columbine shootings…
