Bibliography Project Arrives
The Book of Mormon Bibliography, an index of all serious studies about the Book of Mormon, should be ready for distribution this fall. It already contains over 1,850 entries. This monumental bibliography will be the first relatively comprehensive listing of articles, papers, book and theses dealing with the Book of Mormon. It will provide a solid base for the Book of Mormon Encyclopedia and facilitate other organized research on Book of Mormon topics as well as guide development of the FARMS Reprint series. It should also help prevent unnecessary duplication of research. When it is available, we hope many will review this bibliography and notify FARMS of any titles that may have been overlooked.
Gary Gillum is directing this project, with assistance from Denise Davidson, Jack Welch, David Whittaker, Scott Norwood and many others. Don Green of Salt Lake City has very generously provided five large volumes of articles about the Book of Mormon which he has collected from Church magazines from 1948 to the present. FARMS has also had access to several private collections, including the Sidney B. Sperry papers.
