The Collected Works of Hugh Nibley: Volume 14. Nibley's defense of the Book of Abraham. "The argument against the Book of Abraham on which eminent Egyptologists were most insistent was that the Egyptians were pagan, worlds removed from the religion of the Hebrews. But for some time now, every year has seen the narrowing of the gap as a steady and growing flow of discoveries and studies brings Egypt, Israel, and early Christianity ever closer and closer together."
