Read full description of the books Old Testament and Related Studies:Hugh Nibley's is a mind which cannot be stopped. This first installment showcases an indefatigable thirst for knowledge and a exciting way of looking at common LDS cosmology. This book really merits four stars, but the editors who put together this collection of Nibley's lectures/talks/articles irritated me to the point of subtracting from the overall work. Lazy lazy lazy. When a particular article came from a manuscript which Nibley had published, it was easy to the see the magnificence of his scholarship. Meticulous. Each source, every statement had exact bibliographic information and, more often than not, extensive end notes. However, when the editors of the book transcribed a talk or lecture (a situation where Nibley certainly had sources in mind, but didn't necessarily slow down a lecture to elaborate on them) very few notes or sources are given. A serious scholar of Nibley's work would have put in the effort to track down sources and make notes to the work. The editors make note of other Nibley works where such documentation is shown, but for a collection purporting to be the "collected works" of Hugh Nibley, I expect more.
Read information about the authorHugh Winder Nibley was one of Mormonism's most celebrated scholars. Nibley is notable for his extensive research and publication on ancient languages and culture, his vigorous defense of doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and for frankly discussing what he saw as the shortcomings of the LDS people and culture.
A prolific author and professor of ancient scripture at Brigham Young University, he was fluent in over ten languages, including Classical Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Egyptian, Coptic, Arabic, German, French, English, and Spanish languages. He also studied Dutch and Russian during World War II.
In addition to his efforts as a scholar, Nibley was well known for writings and lectures on LDS scripture and doctrinal topics, many of which were published in LDS Church magazines. His book “An Approach to the Book of Mormon” was used as a lesson manual for the LDS Church in 1957.
