The Yale Book of Mormon text goes into its third printing

RoyalSkousenAuthorandPropritorI’m delighted to hear that Royal Skousen’s superb and helpful Yale University Press edition of The Book of Mormon: The Earliest Text has just gone into its third printing.

The folks at Yale didn’t really expect it to make a second printing, so this represents considerable success.

And, just in case you missed the announcement, the massive books outlining his arguments for his various text-critical decisions are now up and freely accessible on the website of The Interpreter Foundation:
