Analysis of Textual Variants of the Book of Mormon, is a beautiful book and the fourth part in Professor Royal Skousen’s ongoing Book of Mormon critical text project. This book considers every significant change that has occurred in the English Book of Mormon over the 175 years since Joseph Smith first dictated it to his scribes; it also considers a number of conjectured revisions for specific passages. Volume 1 commences with the Title Page and the Witness statements, and then proceeds from 1 Nephi 1 through 2 Nephi 10. It thus represents approximately one seventh of the Book of Mormon as we have it.
