James and Hannah Stoddard of the Joseph Smith Foundation delivered four presentations at the 23rd International Book of Mormon Evidence Conference on April 11-13th. The rooms were filled to overflowing, requiring them to offer three repeat presentations to packed rooms again during the lunch and dinner breaks. The Joseph Smith Foundation released a new book, Seer Stone v. Urim & Thummim: Book of Mormon Translation on Trial, and answered questions from hundreds of attendees regarding Joseph Smith’s polygamy, the Book of Mormon translation, Church history, faith crisis, allegations that Joseph Smith was involved in magic and treasure digging and much more!
If you were not able to attend the event, you can discover some of the material shared during these presentations in their new book, Seer Stone v. Urim & Thummim: Book of Mormon Translation on Trial, the documentary Statesmen & Symbols: Prelude to the Restoration, as well as several new articles that will be posted on Latter-day Answers (ldsanswers.org) over the next few months. Stay tuned!
