Joseph Smith's Translation of the Bible: Electronic Library brings together a wealth of information and recent scholarship on Joseph Smith's translation of the Bible. The electronic library, produced by the Religious Studies Center and the Maxwell Institute, also includes high-resolution images of every page of the original manuscripts, images and transcriptions of the earliest copies made from those manuscripts, and a collection of recently published studies based on the manuscripts. A short introductory essay precedes each manuscript. This collection also includes the entire 851-page book Joseph Smith's New Translation of the Bible: Original Manuscripts, edited by Scott H. Faulring, Kent P. Jackson, and Robert J. Matthews.
A powerful electronic tool—WordCruncher, developed at BYU by the Maxwell Institute's Research Technology Group—enables users of the electronic library to view the transcriptions, images, and printed texts either individually or side by side in any order, with full capacity to search each text.
"The electronic library further enables Latter-day Saints to get to know Joseph Smith's Bible translation," noted Jackson. "With the WordCruncher program, users can research the original documents as never before."
The library can be viewed on Windows 2000, XP, or higher and is available for purchase at the BYU Bookstore.
