The uncollected papers of Hugh Nibley, which he has given to FARMS, include a mouthwatering assortment of his work for the past twenty years. No decision has yet been made whether to prepare a comprehensive book or to offer them in a separate series of FARMS reprints. They include his 1968-69 series from The Improvement Era on the Book of Abraham, his 1975-76 series for The Ensign on Enoch, multi-part articles on baptism for the dead, "The Stick of Judah and the Stick of Joseph," a study of Book of Mormon criticism, some of his classical studies on the ancient world, Isaiah, the apostasy, the forty-day ministry of Christ, the Lachish letters dating from Lehi's time in Israel, Zion, Adam, prayer circles in early Christianity, archaeology, and trenchant essays about the state of modern society.
