Hugh Nibley Collected Works
In 1988, the Book of Mormon will be the study course for the L.D.S. adult Sunday School. F.A.R.M.S. feels that it is important that the Hugh Nibley Book of Mormon volumes, several of which are now out of print, should be available as teaching and study helps. Not only do they represent some of the finest work in detailing how the Book of Mormon reflects the culture and customs of the ancient Near East, but also they are written so non-scholars can understand and appreciate the wealth of these details.
The major delay in getting these book back in print as additional volumes in the Hugh Nibley Collected Works is the cost of the research in checking the many footnotes. This is done by a team of graduate students, and this research costs approximately $2,000 per book.
F.A.R.M.S. thinks that there are a number of our readers who, either as individuals or businesses, feel strongly enough about the importance of the Book of Mormon to fund the research costs of one or more of these books and in that way ensure that they will be printed by the fall of 1987.
Any person, business, or association that donates the complete research costs for a volume will be recognized in the book when it is published, will receive an autographed copy of the book, and, with their permission, will be personally thanked in a future issue of Insights.
When you donate, please indicate which of the listed books you would like to fund. If more than one full donation comes in for a particular book, F.A.R.M.S. will contact the donors for further arrangements.
