Episode 15 – Manuscript Found by Sidney Rigdon

On this episode, we take a look at the Spalding theory for the source text for the Book of Mormon. The Spalding theory has been stuck in the margins of Mormon history for quite some time. Well, we try to rip it out of the margins, and into the spotlight for critical examination and a fair trial in the court of historical possibilities. There’s a lot of information to cover, and a lot of conjecture to answer to, but the evidence seems to be there, to support the claims of the theory. Does it seem plausible to you?
