John W. Welch and Melvin J. Thorne (Editors). Provo, Utah: Foundation for Ancient Research & Mormon Studies (FARMS), 1999.
The FARMS Research Updates of the 1990s, plus some similar short notes from the Journal of Book of Mormon Studies, in a new collection.
Aimed at a general audience, these Updates are brief, easy-to-understand reports of new research on the Book of Mormon. They tell of intriguing ideas and developments that have emerged from exploring the Book of Mormon from many perspectives. Pressing Forward will interest all people who want to know what’s new in Book of Mormon research.
“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the father: Ye shall have eternal life.” (2 Nephi 31:20)
Most people who work with the Book of Mormon feel that they have barely scratched the surface. The richness and complexity of that book offer an inexhaustible wealth of understanding.
The ultimate goal of this effort is to help all the students of the scriptures to “press forward. Feasting upon the words of Christ.”
