FARMS Review Issues now available online at BYU’s Library

Daniel Peterson established the Review of Books on the Book of Mormon in 1989. The name changed to FARMS Review of Books in 1996 to reflect reviews of books on topics other than the Book of Mormon, and then it became FARMS Review in 2003 when it was clear that it contained articles as well as reviews. The final issue under Daniel Peterson’s editorship was issued in 2011.

The entire collection is now digitally available from the BYU Library system. Click here for the index.
