Joseph Smith's Translation

The Words and Worlds of Early Mormonism

Samuel Morris Brown

  • Provides a new framework for understanding Mormon scripture and theology
  • Provides a new contextualization and interpretive strategy for the Mormon temple liturgy
  • Demonstrates that the temple liturgy merges the textual and human modes of Smith's translation, refiguring those central rites and their supportive theology
  • Moves beyond polemical models to understand the Book of Abraham, its significance, and its relationship to the Bible
