Lecture: Reading the Book of Mormon
Thursday, February 18, 2010 - Thursday, February 18, 2010
Grant Hardy will meet present a public lecture entitled "Reading the Book of Mormon." Hardy, Associate Professor of History at the University of North Carolina Asheville, is best known to Mormons for The Book of Mormon: A Reader’s Edition, but he soon will be better known for his structural analysis of the Book of Mormon coming out with Oxford University Press next year. Hardy explains how the three major historians in the book, Nephi, Mormon, and Moroni constructed their narratives differently, making each of these writers a distinctive presence in the book.
