Joseph Smith famously said that the Book of Mormon is "the most correct book” on Earth.  But what does this really mean? Was he referring to the perfection of the grammar and English in his translation? Or was something else meant? In this episode, Professor Nick Frederick, a Book of Mormon scholar himself, examines the textual variants in the Book of Mormon, highlighting the vital work done by Royal Skousen in the Critical Text Project—and how the book can be spiritually "the most correct" despite variations in its translation over the years.


’It is Not an Easy Task, But It Cannot Be Avoided: On the Contribution of Royal Skousen’” (Journal of Book of Mormon Studies, 2022)
