499: Brent Metcalfe Part 5 -- Book of Abraham

In Part 5 of our interview with Brent Metcalfe, one of the foremost Mormon scholars, we explore the history surrounding Joseph Smith and the Book of Abraham (one of the primary scriptural texts for the LDS Church). We also talk about the concept of translation, Joseph Smith's views on his "translations," the traditional apologetic responses concerning the Book of Abraham (Hugh NibleyJohn Gee, and Kerry Muhlestein), as well as the LDS Church's recent essay on the Book of Abraham.
