The Revelation of the Book of Mormon at 200 – Episode 86 – The Oxford Comment

August 29, 2023

On today’s episode, we’re joined by two preeminent scholars on the history and theology of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as this September marks the 200th anniversary of Joseph Smith’s first vision of the angel Moroni. We welcomed Richard Lyman Bushman, the author of Joseph Smith’s Gold Plates: A Cultural History, to discuss with us the legacy of Joseph Smith’s Gold Plates and the origins of The Book of Mormon two centuries ago. We then interviewed Grant Hardy, whose new The Annotated Book of Mormon is the first ever fully annotated, academic edition of the book.
