Trending Book of Abraham Research

JWHA-jour_EgyptusIn the coming weeks and months, a few podcasts will examine the Gospel Topic “Translation and Historicity of the Book of Abraham.”

To give listeners a glimpse of emerging trends in BoAbr research, see my essay “The Curious Textual History of ‘Egyptus’ the Wife of Ham.” As I discuss in the article, textual editing and criticism are important tools for understanding the various BoAbr manuscripts.

My essay was published in the John Whitmer Historical Association Journal. I encourage listeners to support and join the JWHA. As my friend Newell Bringhurst said when greeting me at the first JWHA conference I attended, “This is the more accepting, cooler conference that the Mormon History Association wishes it could be.” 🙂
