I am very excited to announce that I will soon be interviewing Brent Metcalfe. Brent is a fascinating interview for Mormon Stories for many reasons, including:
- He knew forger and bomber Mark Hofmann personally.
- He worked directly for Steven Christensen (son of Mr. Mac), one of Mark Hofmann’s victims.
- He went on to author/edit New Approaches to the Book of Mormon: Explorations in Critical Methodology, which examined in-depth the historicity claims of the Book of Mormon.
- Brent was ultimately excommunicated for editing/authoring this book.
- Brent has become one of the foremost scholars in understanding the Book of Abraham.
- Brent is generally a giant in Mormon Studies, and is a great guy.
Please post your questions for Brent here. Thanks!
