Considered by many to be a classic in LDS literature, Abraham in Egypt is coming back to print in an enlarged edition published in association with the Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies (FARMS). In 1968-1970, Hugh Nibley wrote a series of articles for the Improvement Era titled "A New Look at the Pearl of Great Price." Brother Nibley asked that some of these articles be made into chapters to be added to Abraham in Egypt. This is what constitutes the new edition; no changes were made to the original chapters. For the articles, Nibley drew from many Jewish and rabbinical sources, while his work in the first edition was based on Egyptian material.This book defends the Book of Abraham against the critics, showing the similarities between ancient sources and the Book of Abraham. Nibley's research reveals the religious message of the Book of Abraham to the modern world and the Church.

Unfortunately you do not have 10 stars to rate this book - absolutely a work of art. Hooray for Brother Hugh Nibley. In my view the greatest scholar the church has seen - his passing has left a void that will be sorely felt. This work once again shows his brilliance and his mastery of the topic.
