F.A.R.M.S. FINISHES THREE MAJOR PROJECTS IN JUNE
June has been a productive month. Thanks to hundreds of volunteer hours, three significant projects have recently been completed. We think you will be interested in each of them.
1. The 1985 F.A.R.M.S. Catalog. This 16-page booklet lists over 300 items which are now available from F.A.R.M.S. Every item in the catalog is described and abstracted so that readers can easily understand what each paper, book, or video is about. The catalog makes a large scripture research library available to virtually everyone, worldwide. It includes all current F.A.R.M.S. Book of Mormon research items, as well as the now practically complete Hugh Nibley Archive. This catalog is a real monument to many years of good scholarship on the Book of Mormon. You can order extra copies at 50¢. A sheet listing the items alphabetically can be had for 25¢.
2. John Sorenson's long-awaited book, An Ancient American Setting for the Book of Mormon (Deseret Book and F.A.R.M.S., 1985), is now available. It has been called "required reading." You will find it very rewarding in many ways. Since orders placed through F.A.R.M.S. help the foundation most, we hope you will order your copy immediately. The full price is $14.95, which includes all handling and shipping costs. There is no sales tax through F.A.R.M.S., and, in addition, all royalties on this book go to the Foundation to support scriptural research. Add $3.00 more and we will send a set of 16 Book of Mormon and Mesoamerican maps reprinted from the book. These are great for study and classroom use.
3. The Hugh Nibley documentary, The Faith of an Observer: Conversations with Hugh Nibley, has premiered and is now available on VHS cassettes. F.A.R.M.S. began working on this movie over two years ago; it was eventually completed as a joint venture between F.A.R.M.S. and BYU Media Production. Filmed on locations from Egypt to Berkeley, this video lets Dr. Nibley express his personal feelings about life, spirituality, wealth, education, war, and the meaning of the scriptures and the temple. Complete price is $29.95. Add $1.50 for a footnoted transcript of the soundtrack.
