These books are awesome! If you want the latest high end, biblical scholarship on the Hebrew Bible, by a Brandies Phd and former LDS Chaplain at Harvard, and you want to see how this actually applies to Mormon scripture then this is the book for you. This is the real thing and not fluff. I also LOVE Bokovoy's approach to the Pearl of Great Price. Away with the old apologetics; Bokovoy's approach is a scholarly jujitsu, using our critics momentum against them.
An outstanding and very accessible summary of Old Testament scholarship for non-experts, written in a faithful and recognizably LDS voice. It is very well-written and readable. I had a hard time putting it down. Professor Bokovoy has done Latter-day Saints a great service in writing this book. I hope he writes more books about the bible.
This book was absolutely eye opening- but in a very good way! It is an introduction to how biblical scholars at large approach the Hebrew Bible for Mormons and distills 130 years of scholarly detective work down to a single volume that is a wonderful read. Perhaps most importantly the author explores what implications this long held scholarly consensus regarding the books of the Old Testament has on scripture that is unique to Mormonism. Fascinating! Wonderful! Superb! Every Gospel Doctrine teacher should start here.
