Internet: Scripture Websites, Study Groups and Symposia

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Recently several websites that came to Mormon News' attention seemed to focus on studies of the scriptures and Mormon theology and culture. And they cover a broad range of material, from early editions of Mormon scriptures, to new symposia like the annual Sunstone Symposium West and the monthly Miller-Eccles Study Group.

One site that may have the most potential is Mormon Scripture Studies, a beautiful site apparently meant to house papers written on Mormon scripture. However, the site doesn't work well in Netscape, and its complicated way of displaying information makes the user uncertain whether or not he is actually seeing all the information.

More useful are the simpler "Revelation 22" and "Joseph Smith Jun.'s Contributions" sites. The latter includes the original editions of works written by Joseph Smith, while the former concentrates its efforts on debunking the way one scripture is used in an attempt to "prove" Mormonism in error.

Newly Listed Mormon Websites:

Joseph Smith Jun.'s Contributions to the Scriptures for the People of the Modern Age and Present Hour

Site dedicated to the Scriptures and writings of Joseph Smith. Includes the original editions of the Book of Mormon, Book of Commandments, Lectures on Faith, Doctrine and Covenants, Pearl of Great Price, the Inspired version of the Bible, and other writings.

The Miller-Eccles Study Group

Study group founded in 1980 to encourage LDS scholarship. Website includes information on the group's mission, history, previous speakers and sponsors. Also included is the current issue of the group's newsletter, new member information and a list of favorite links.

Mormon Scripture Studies

Academically-oriented site that includes papers written on Mormon scripture. Includes sections on the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants and Church History, the Book of Abraham and the Temple, and the Bible and the Joseph Smith Revision.

Revelation 22:18-19 -- The "Mormon-Theology-Killer" Passage

Web page attacks the use of Revelation 22:18-19 to mean that no other scripture should exist. This passage is often used to say that the LDS scriptures must not be believed.

Sunstone Symposium West 2002

Information on the Sunstone Symposium West for 2002. Include's the symposium's call for papers, information on the location and lodging for the symposium and background information about it's purpose.
