The Reader's Book of Mormon 7 Volume Boxed Set free pdf There are many ways to approach scripture. Although commentaries from theological, historical, linguistic, and other scholarly approaches abound, most of us read scripture for the pleasure of it--for the sense of personal fulfillment and enrichment. As we read the text, we bring our own individual perspectives to bear based on personal journeys and current intellectual and spiritual understandings. With this in mind, Robert Rees and Eugene England solicited six prominent LDS writers to offer informed personal views derived from various portions of the Book of Mormon, followed by the scriptural text itself. Their insights will certainly enhance the enjoyment and understanding of other readers. The contributors are Claudia L. Bushman, Susan Elizabeth Howe, Linda Hoffman Kimball, Douglas Thayer, Steven Walker, and William A. Wilson.
