In Refuting the Critics, Michael T. Griffith answers criticisms of the Book of Mormon raised by anti-Mormon writers and presents numerous evidences of the veracity of that sacred text. This book documents a wide array of evidences of the Nephite record. Exciting new research developments are discussed in detail, including recent studies on:
Archaeology and the Book of Mormon
Computer wordprint tests
Ancient Near Eastern language elements in the Nephite record
The geography of the Book of Mormon
Cultural parallels between ancient America and the Old World
This Book also refutes challenges raised by critics against the Nephite record. The following are some of the anti-Mormon issues considered and answered herein:
Bible passages in the Book of Mormon
Ethan Smith’s View of the Hebrews and the Nephite record
The Spaulding theory
Alleged anachronisms in the Book of Mormon
Alma 7:10 and the place of the Savior’s birth
Supposed conflicts between archaeology and the Book of Mormon
The accuracy and completeness of the Bible
Refuting the Critics is carefully researched and thoroughly documented. Well over two hundred sources are cited, including scores of scholarly works by recognized LDS and non-LDS experts in such fields as Near Eastern and Mesoamerican archaeology, biblical studies, early Christian history, and ancient languages. Yet, for all of the impressive evidence presented herein, the author is careful to point out that the most powerful confirmation of the Book of Mormon comes from the Holy Ghost.
Easy to understand yet abundantly documented, Refuting the Critics strengthens faith in the Book of Mormon and will be a valuable missionary tool.
