Summary

This volume -- the work of a lifetime -- brings together all the Joseph Smith Translation manuscripts in a remarkable and useful way. Now, for the first time, readers can take a careful look at the complete text, along with photos of several actual manuscript pages. The book contains a typographic transcription of all the original manuscripts, unedited and preserved exactly as dictated by the Prophet Joseph and recorded by his scribes. In addition, this volume features essays on the background, doctrinal contributions, and editorial procedures involved in the Joseph Smith Translation, as well as the history of the manuscripts since Joseph Smith's day. Scott H. Faulring is a research historian at the Joseph Fielding Smith Institute for Latter-day Saint History at Brigham Young University. Kent P. Jackson is a professor of ancient scripture at BYU. He holds a Ph.D. in ancient Near Eastern and biblical studies and is a prolific author. Robert J. Matthews is also the author of many books, including "A Plainer Translation": Joseph Smith's Translation of the Bible. He has served as dean of Religious Education at BYU and as a member of the Scriptures Publications Committee of the Church.
