St. Polycarp Publishing House Announces New Book Which Examines the Origins of The Book of Mormon
Contact: Aaron Simms, 470-326-6578

SUWANEE, Ga., March 8, 2018 /Standard Newswire/ -- St. Polycarp Publishing House is pleased to announce the upcoming release of "The Spalding Enigma: Investigating the Mysterious Origin of The Book of Mormon" by Wayne L. Cowdrey, Arthur Vanick, and Howard A. Davis. It also features a Foreword by Dr. Gene Edward Veith who says, "'The Spalding Enigma' makes important contributions to the history of Mormonism... [and] American history as a whole."

The book will be published on May 15th, 2018 and is available for pre-order now.

Where did "The Book of Mormon" come from? Who was Solomon Spalding and what connection did his manuscript have with Joseph Smith? To answer these questions, this book critically examines key historical documents, personal testimonies, and records of 19th-century Mormon history to examine this "Spalding Enigma."

The authors have spent decades collecting and analyzing evidence to conclude that "The Book of Mormon" is an "adaptation of an obscure historical novel" written by Revolutionary War veteran Solomon Spalding during the War of 1812. They assert that Mormon founders Sidney Rigdon, Oliver Cowdery, and Joseph Smith Jr. adapted and embellished the Spalding manuscript to create "The Book of Mormon."

Follow along with Wayne Cowdrey (a relative of Oliver Cowdrey's family), Arthur Vanick, and Howard Davis as they pursue this enigma and present the evidence for you to draw your own conclusion.

Readers' Edition: Presents the authors' research and findings in a concise manner. Great for most readers who want the main points in an accessible format. Available as a 248 page paperback as well as an ebook (Kindle, iBook, Nook).
