Hugh Nibley on the Book of Mormon

From Hugh Nibley, The Prophetic Book of Mormon (1989), 165-66.

The idea that the Book of Mormon was simply a product of its time may be a necessary fiction to explain it but it is fiction nonetheless. If they may be trusted in nothing else, the voluminous writings of the anti-Mormons stand as monumental evidence for one fact: that Mormonism and the Book of Mormon were in no way a product of the society in which they arose.
