Naturalistic Assumptions and the Book of Mormon

Author Gary F. Novak

Gary Novak explains the problems caused by looking at religious history through naturalistic assumptions. He uses the naturalistic writings of Dale Morgan and Fawn Brodie to show that such assumptions exclude God from the writing of history, transforming the meaning of faith and eroding collective religious memory. He looks at biases created when Marvin Hill and Leonard Arrington adopt naturalistic assumptions into their writing.
