Book of Abraham
Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 60 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1879.
This is an historical document which defends the authenticity of the controversial Book of Abraham, part of the canonical Pearl of Great Price. The Book of Abraham was purportedly translated from an Egyptian manuscript purchased by the Mormons from a travelling show in 1835, long before their trek to Utah. Joseph Smith quickly produced a translation of this document, claiming it was written by Abraham in his own hand. The manuscript disappeared for many years until it resurfaced in 1967 in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. At that time Egyptian experts verified that it was actually a papyrus of a portion of the Book of the Dead. However, the Book of Abraham is still considered part of the Pearl of Great Price and is held to be authentic by devout Mormons.
