Hugh Nibley: A Consecrated Life by Boyd Jay

Winner of the Mormon History Association’s Best Biography Award

As one of the LDS Church’s most widely recognized scholars, Hugh Nibley is both an icon and an enigma. Through complete access to Nibley’s correspondence, journals, notes, and papers, Petersen has painted a portrait that reveals the man behind the legend.

Starting with a foreword written by Zina Nibley Petersen and finishing with appendices that include some of the best of Nibley’s personal correspondence, the biography reveals aspects of the tapestry of the life of one who has truly consecrated his life to the service of the Lord.

About the Author

Boyd Petersen served an LDS mission to France-Paris, where he learned French and knocked on several thousand doors. He attended BYU, where he met Zina, fell for her, and finally convinced her to marry him. After trying out several majors, he eventually graduated with a degree in French and International Relations. Hopeless idealists, he and Zina later moved to Washington, where Boyd worked for the U.S. Congress for eight years (House, Senate, and Congressional Research Service) until he realized he wasn't Jed Bartlett. To compensate, he completed a Master's degree in Comparative Literature at the University of Maryland. He and Zina now live in Provo with their four children, Mary, Christian, Nathanael, and Andrew. Boyd currently teaches at UVU and has received his PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of Utah. He is a Gospel Doctrine and Priesthood Quorum instructor in his ward.
