Fine, but will we have access to the real Church history, ie., the same material found in An Insider's view of Mormon Origins by Grant Palmer and Early Mormonism and the Magic World View by Michael Quinn?


Ron: The same material found in the two books you mentioned are also found in many other books, just not in the same tone which you are probably partial too. While Quinn's work was quite enlightening in some points, Palmer's was just a rehashing of events that have been discussed elsewhere in much better ways (both by pro- and anti- mormons).

I have to agree with Ben's comment, I found Palmers's work amateurish at best. Is this Ron Priddis??
