Encyclopedia of Hebrew Language and Linguistics Publishes Two Articles Discussing Hebrew and the Book of Mormon

A new two-volume Encyclopedia of Hebrew Language and Linguistics has just appeared from the venerable European publishing house E. J. Brill. It includes two articles requested by the editors from John A. Tvedtnes:

“Hebraisms in the Book of Mormon”

“Hebrew Names in the Book of Mormon”

The articles include a reading list, which depends mostly upon publications from the Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies, though there were also some materials from other LDS sources.
