Peterson discusses the growth of the Mormon religion and scholarly indifference toward that growth. He discusses the power of presuppositions and the variance of opinions, using the Qur'an as a case study. The orignality, literary merit, and intrinsic merit of the Book of Mormon increase our appreciation for that book.
