Abstract

Traces Orson Pratt’s work as a “student, advocate, and editor” of the Book of Mormon. Recounts how he drew heavily on the work of his brother, Parley P. Pratt, and on his own scientific background to defend the Book of Mormon. Tells of his work in making extensive format changes to the 1879 edition of the Book of Mormon to make it more accessible to students.
