Ep 32 – Ender’s Game & Mormon Success

Ep 24 – Who Wrote the Book of Mormon – Part 1
Who wrote the Book of Mormon? Did Joseph Smith really translate an ancient record from golden plates through the power of God? Did he simply make up the story himself? Or did he collude with other men and plagiarize a mysterious unpublished novel? In part one of this three part series, Glenn and Randy interview historian John Hamer to discuss the theory of Joseph Smith as sole author.
