Sobre o livro
The Pearl of Greatest Price narrates the history of Mormonism's fourth volume of scripture, canonized in 1880 as The Pearl of Great Price. The authors track its predecessors, describe its several components, and assess their theological significance within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. From the disputed origins of Smith's "Book of Abraham," to perceived discrepancies between Smith's canonized visionary account and other versions, thestatus of this text is vital to the church's present health and future prospects.
