A New Witness for Christ in America : Evidence of Divine Power in the "Coming Forth" of the Book of Mormon
Zion's Printing and Publishing Co.
The Book of Mormon has withstood a century of attempts to prove it man-made. Despite fierce and unending assaults, it continues to challenge the attention and scrutiny of the world.
One result of this vigorous opposition has been the formation of a large Book of Mormon literature. Friend and foe have sought and sifted sources and evidences to support their views. Few books have been so thoroughly examined.
The first task that Dr. Kirkham has set himself in this book is to assemble and digest all that has been said about the Book of Mormon. And he has not confined himself to one side of the question, viewing both anti- and pro-Mormon ideals, which enables the reader to more intelligently and surely form his own conclusions.
While this book is a scholarly, thoroughgoing work recognizing all sources of information and stating all views. Yet through it, because of the overwhelming evidence, runs the central thesis that the Book of Mormon is divine. This book cannot be read without becoming more and more convinced that the Book was translated and given to the world by the gift and power of God.
The Book of Mormon and the method of its "coming forth" bear a glorious testimony to all the world that Jesus is the Christ, and that He lives and enters into the affairs of all men for their joy, peace and progress in earth life, and that men after death live on in another world of activity, made more glorious for those who have been obedient to the Gospel message. The Book of Mormon is, indeed, a new witness for Christ in America.
