FairMormon has placed an important article on their blog. As stated in the introduction: “Professor Anthony Sweat (an assistant professor of Church history and doctrine at Brigham Young University) and the Religious Studies Center at BYU have kindly allowed FairMormon to post an excerpt from the new volume From Darkness unto Light: Joseph Smith’s Translation and Publication of the Book of Mormon by Michael Hubbard MacKay and Gerrit J.
