A Book of Mormon for the Jewish People? A Conversation with Adrian Larsen

Mormon Book Reviews Podcast by Steven Pynakker

Episode notes

Evangelical Steven Pynakker interviews Adrian Larsen of the Restoration Scriptures Foundation. He was involved in a project to create a Hebriac recovery edition of the Book of Mormon called "The Stick of Joseph in the Hand of Ephraim". This version is independently published and is not affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this episode we discuss the history of the Jewishness of the BOM, the intended audience of the Book, the use of Hebrew names and concepts, the translator Yosef ben Yosef, the process of creating the text, its reception, and why the LDS Church won't publish a Hebrew language BOM. In the second half of the conversation we discuss his faith journey which led him into the Restorationist Movement affiliated with Denver Snuffer.
