NIBLEY WORKS VOLUME I PUBLISHED
The first volume of the Collected Works of Hugh Nibley is now available. Old Testament and Related Studies gathers together eleven Nibley articles and talks, several of which are published here for the first time. The first four address problems raised by opponents of the Bible—claims against the historicity of the creation account and early narratives in Genesis, and the skeptical views of existentialist theologians, textual critics, and evolutionists. Three other papers deal with the creeation itself, with innuendos regarding rituals based on creation account narratives. Other essays are about Isaiah and the Dead Sea Scrolls.
This is the first of a multi-volume series of Nibley's Collected Works, being published in cooperation with Deseret Book Company. The second volume, Enoch the Prophet will appear this fall. All the articles are being edited, footnotes checked and standardized, and newly typeset. Subsequent volumes will cover Ancient History, Pearl of Great Price, Early Christianity, Book of Mormon, Mormonism, Education, Politics and Society. Editors include Linda Adams, Jim Bell, Todd Compton, Gary Gillum, Don Norton, Stephen Ricks, Michael Rhodes, John Welch, David Whittaker, and many assistants.
