The Laura F. Willes Center for Book of Mormon Studies has invited John W. Welch to deliver the 2017 Book of Mormon lecture. Professor Welch will speak on the theme:

Hours Never to Be Forgotten:
Timing the Translation of the Book of Mormon

Welch's lecture will develop more precisely many amazing details now known about the key events that anchor our historical understandings of those hours and days—about the pace of translation, and about witness testimonies that credibly document the impressive translation of the Book of Mormon. New materials will be presented to develop further point presented in the recently released second edition of the book Opening the Heavens: Accounts of Divine Manifestations, 1820-1844 (Provo, UT: BYU Studies).
