Mystery of the Book of Mormon Translation
I discuss the numerous early sources, beginning in 1829, regarding the translation of the Book of Mormon. Differing statements, peculiaries versions of the Book of Mormon supervised by Joseph Smith (the original manuscript and the printer's manuscript, the 1830, 1837 and 1840 editions) and points of logic and reason. These factors have lead to several theories as to the source of the text of the Book of Mormon. After some 180 years the matter yet remains a mystery.
I focus especially on questions pertaining to the use of the interpreters, urim and thummin, seerstone and director.
I explain my own theory of the Book of Mormon translation.
