    Just finished reading it through for the first time this week. Would like to discuss the contents with others before moving on to the next volume. Thanks Daymon for the work and thought you put into this. This is a game changer for those who will read it and consider the implications of how we gentiles created a metatext and metachurch unwittingly based on the culture we could not separate from the gifts that were given at the genesis of our faith—and how utterly clueless we have been and are today as to how we created a church/religion in our own image and in so doing rejected what was potentially being offered

  6. Seeking says:

    Daymon, thank you, an excellent piece. I look forward with anticipation to the next volume. I am rereading the Book of Mormon with a completely different eye.

    1. day2mon says:

      excellent. that is the effect I’m hoping for, and the next volume should make the new reading easier to pull off.
