Hugh Nibley is one of the best-known and most highly revered of Latter-day Saint scholars. For over forty years this near-legendary teacher has enthralled his readers and listeners with his encyclopedic knowledge, his wit, and his untiring research in defense of Latter-day Saint beliefs. Now you can join Dr. Nibley in the first of four Honors Book of Mormon classes that he taught at BYU during 1988-90. Part one contains twenty-nine lectures focusing on 1 Nephi through Mosiah 5. It is vintage Nibley, with his insights, humor, and passionate convictions, discussing a book that he loves and knows so well.

Dr. Nibley passed away in February, 2005.
questionable but interesting

There is alot of good stuff in here. A fun read but very tedious at times. I'm sure listening to the lecture on audio or DVD is a much more enthralling experience. Because the text of the book seems to be straight dialogue of the recording, it is hard to follow or keep your attention as you attempt reading it.
