Bibliography

Note: As I have read and researched the charges and claims against the Book of Mormon over the last forty years in preparation for producing this work, my studies have led me to hundreds of books. Each of these books cited hundreds of others in their bibliographies, most of which were very dry, and which few people would enoy reading. I considered citing all these sources and realized the attempt would be voluminous. So instead, I have included here a list of the major
books which contain the research or references to all the works from which I have drawn. I feel confident that in the list provided below, or in the sources cited in each of these books, one can find all that has been referred to in the text. For the reader’s information, I have included the number of pages, and the number of references ( 17,650 ), where available, for each citation, indicating the 40 years of research to bring this all together. These additional references noted total 27,891 more pages of research. —— J. Milton Rich
