Product Description

Most Latter-day Saints know the essential story of the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, but there are scores of fascinating details of the saga that are seldom told. Now, author Matthew B. Brown connects many little-known historical fragments with more familiar accounts to present the most complete narrative to date on the restoration and translation of this most important scripture. As the engaging story unfolds, you'll step into scenes suffused with a range of human experience — from awe-inspiring meetings with heavenly beings to very earthly altercations between men. You'll examine, in detail, the objects that Joseph Smith found in the stone box, and come to know those who were allowed to handle the sacred engravings.

Intriguing and insightful, Plates of Gold: The Book of Mormon Comes Forth presents a sharpened picture of an important segment of LDS history.

Lots of New Information
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

In BYU Magazine (Spring 2008) this book was called "a fascinating, very readable volume fraught with many well-known, little-known, and generally unknown details" about the coming forth of the Book of Mormon. The reviewer (Richard H. Cracroft) calls this volume "engaging," "inspiring," "intriguing," and "well-anchored in historical sources." He says you can expect "excellence" from this author. I couldn't agree more.

Nothing New

There is really nothing new in this book. It rehashes the same information we already know about the coming for of the Book of Mormon.
