In the January 7, 2012, edition of the Wall Street Journal, Samuel Morris Brown identifies Grant Hardy’s The Book of Mormon: A Reader’s Edition as one of the top 5 best books about Mormonism.
“Hardy’s thoughtful ‘reader’s edition’ eliminates the current official text’s knotty versification, clarifies the cast of characters, includes a useful introduction and provides signposts through the sometimes dense prose. . . . Essential for the full comprehension of Mormonism.”
