WWE - Review of 'Authoring the Old Testament'

A couple months ago, I was asked to write a review of David Bokovoy's new book Authoring the Old Testament: Genesis - Deuteronomy for Worlds Without End. This quote from my review (used by Greg Kofford Books) sums up my feelings well: "Authoring the Old Testament is not only a work of scholarship, but one of passion. And it is brimming with charity toward his readers...David and Greg Kofford Books have done Latter-day Saints a great service with this publication. I hope to see its influence in future Sunday School, Institute, and Seminary classes Church wide." It's an important book for Latter-day Saints and an informative one for any student of the Old Testament and Mormonism. You can see an interview with David on the book in the video above. The video below is a lecture he gave at Benchmark Books promoting it.
