In addition, Royal will be presenting a fireside entitled "Recovering the Original Text of the Book of Mormon." The announcement for this fireside follows:
- Recovering the Original Text of the Book of Mormon -
Presented by Brigham Young University Professor of Linguistics Royal Skousen
Residents of the Cedar City area will have a rare opportunity Sunday evening, July 1st, 2012, at 7:00 p.m., to attend a fireside presented by Brigham Young University Professor of Linguistics Royal Skousen who has, for the past nearly 25 years, led the Book of Mormon Critical Text Project, which has consisted of a meticulous analysis of the original and printer's manuscripts of the Book of Mormon.
Professor Skousen is widely recognized for his expertise in textual analysis. During the course of his study of the Book of Mormon manuscripts, he has made many discoveries that not only expand our knowledge and understanding of the translation of the founding text of the restoration, but that also confirm many aspects of the testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith, the Three and Eight witnesses of the plates of Mormon, and the method by which they were translated. His presentation, entitled "Recovering the Original Text of the Book of Mormon," will take place Sunday evening, July 1st, 2012 at the Enoch West Stake Center, beginning at 7:00 p.m. All are invited to attend—LDS and non-LDS alike. The presentation itself is an hour long, after which Professor Skousen will take questions from the audience for approximately ½ hour.
Should any of you desire to attend this fireside and need directions to the Stake Center or have any other questions concerning the fireside or Cedar City, feel free to email me at [email protected]
(Mods, feel free to delete this thread after the night of the fireside, unless, perchance, an interesting discussion ensues on it.)
