A Hermeneutic of Sacred Texts: Historicism, Revisionism, Positivism, and the Bible and Book of Mormon
historicity of the Book of Mormon; literary value of the Book of Mormon
M.A. thesis. Biblical studies take two approaches—historical and literary. The latter focuses on the narrative. This study focuses on the narrative of the Book of Mormon, which is a collection of complex, interwoven texts, a canonical work and an ancient document. The author looks at the methods of those who want to see the Book of Mormon as a nineteenth-century document. This work is reviewed in M.239.
