Phoenix Presentation: Cultural History of the Book of Mormon

I’ve decided to go ahead and post the presentation, without any editing at all.  It’s raw, and should be listened to with that in mind: it is not a finished product, neither the argument nor the presentation of it.  It is a work in progress.

So, I don’t plan on responding to nit-picking comments about this or that, but any substantial disagreements, grounded empirically in primary materials, are welcome.

 

You’ll want to view the PowerPoint slides along with the presentation, which is cut into two parts (an hour each), followed by Q&A (another hour or so).

  1. Fascinating work Daymon. This is some of the most thought-provoking material I’ve seen on the Book of Mormon in a long time — few people seem to take the book seriously for what it says. I hope this material eventually makes it way into a full book.

  2. Daymon, I’m unable to see some of the quotes & citations in your slide deck. For instance, in my PowerPoint 2010 app, I only see the text “Backman p.357” and an empty graphic placeholder. Perhaps you could save the deck as a pdf and re-post it?

  3. Thank you for posting all of the information from your presentation. I found it very interesting and there was much to think about.

    When you mention people sitting around and talking about the Book of Mormon, it reminded me of Malachi 3:16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

  4. Yep.. us newcomers to your blog aren’t able to view them apparently 😦 the PPT is there, but the rest say removed by the Correlation Committee
