I really appreciate your podcasts – and was very interested in this one – sadly the quality of the recording is rather poor ie too muffled for me to understand much of what he is saying!
so I have just ordered the book!
I would have liked to hear you challenge some of the assumptions this guy made. He obviously had a much more orthodox view of the BoM, but I don’t find the Joseph was a simple farm boy who couldn’t possibly have been this consistent or came up with that many phrases that borrowed from the KJV to have produced the book himself. I found a lot of folk lore in his paradigm about evidences of the BoM, and not a lot of intellectual substance. Had a hard time listening to this one honestly.
