Abstract

A lessening of belief in “the divine Christ” began in the seventeenth century. By Joseph Smith’s day “higher criticism” of the Bible, like a snake coiled, was squeezing the life blood out of Christianity. The Book of Mormon came forth to reaffirm the divinity of Christ. In 1946, the New York Times Book Review listed the Book of Mormon thirty-eighth on the list of books that have most influenced America.
