This book is long overdue. While much amazing research has been done on the composition of the Hebrew Bible in the last two centuries, Mormons are generally ignorant of these things and maintain a near-fundamentalist/traditional approach to the Bible. In this volume, Bokovoy not only discusses how the first five books of the Bible came to be, but does so in a way that is accessible to Latter-day Saints. He then takes and open and honest approach in looking at the ways in which biblical research may affect LDS understandings of restoration scriptures.
