Review of The Joseph Smith Papers, Revelations and Translations, Volume 4: Book of Abraham and Related Manuscripts.

Abstract: The publication of high-resolution documents & carefully prepared transcripts related to the origins of the Book of Abraham is a remarkable achievement that can help students of Church history & the Book of Abraham explore many aspects of that volume of scripture for themselves. The book will provide lasting value for scholars, students, and anyone wishing to better understand the Book of Abraham. However, there are some gaps in the book and a few major problems that can unnecessarily lead readers to question the ancient roots and the divine inspiration behind the Book of Abraham. Openness about the conundrums of the Book of Abraham should be encouraged, but it should be balanced with at least an awareness that there are noteworthy positives that readers can weigh against the question marks.
