During the 22nd International Book of Mormon Evidence Conference, the Joseph Smith Foundation released new research regarding the origins of the seer stone narrative and the Prophet Joseph Smith’s method of translation for the Book of Mormon. Friday’s presentation, “Urim & Thummim or the Seer Stone & Hat?” debunked a popular source for progressive historians when promoting the seer stone narrative, Mormonism Unvailed.
