The Divinity of the Book of Mormon : Proven by Archaeology
Zion's Religio-Literary Society
In submitting this little volume to the public, it is not so much with the thought of presenting new discoveries and new theories, as it is that we may take the discoveries already made, and theories already formed, and bring them together into one volume in convenient form for the use of the increasing number of students of this interesting subject of ever growing importance.
These papers were originally prepared to be used as required readings in connection with the study of the Book of Mormon in Religio locals and were published serially in the "Arena" department of Autumn Leaves. They are the result of a number of years of careful study and research of the best authors and writers of American Archaeology, many of whose works are now out of print, and hence out of reach of a large part of would-be students. The author of this volume has collected the best from such sources and made application of the same in proof of the divinity of the Book of Mormon, in such manner as to make it a hand-book of ready reference upon this subject.
It is confidently believed that The Divinity of the Book of Mormon Proven by Archaeology will prove a source of pleasure, as well as a means of great helpfulness, to the Religians and all investigators of American Antiquities as related to the latter-day work.
