Review of Books on the Book of Mormon, Daniel Peterson, Larry K. Smith, LDS Collectors Edition


The most highly recommended item in the latest Review of Books on the Book of Mormon (volume 7, number 2) is not a single book but a resource library of books on CD-ROM, the LDS Collectors Edition from Infobases. Editor Daniel Peterson gives it three stars (out of a possible four stars) for its usefulness to the student of the scriptures, and reviewer Larry K. Smith calls it a "quantum leap forward" for study and research on the scriptures and related topics because it brings together such a large quantity of good books at such a low price (less than 20 cents a book in the 1995 edition), along with good search capabilities and options for individualizing the material.
