A Joseph Smith Commentary on the Book of Abraham : An Introduction to the Study of the Book of Abraham
Book of Abraham Project
The interest of the author determines the book; this book considers three aspects of the Book of Abraham: two are mainly historical; the other is institutional (doctrinal). The literature on the Book of Abraham ranges from doctrinal commentaries on the Pearl of Great Price (the LDS book of scripture containing the Book of Abraham) to some studies directed to the history of Joseph Smith's involvement with the Egyptian artifacts with which the Book of Abraham has been associated. Few of the latter treat the relevant doctrinal or ancient historical issues. Finally, there is a significant literature regarding the explanations of the facsimiles of the Book of Abraham as well as textual parallels with other ancient extra-canonical writings.
