This volume contains three previously unpublished works by the eminent LDS theologian and scholar B.H. Roberts. Consists of three shorter works: Book of Mormon Difficulties: A Study, A Book of Mormon Study, and A Parallel. The latter describes the author's doubts of the origins of the Book of Mormon. He never shared his doubts publicly, but he wrote a letter to the LDS First Presidency describing an "embarrassing" theory about the similarities between the Book of Mormon and Ethan Smith's View of the Hebrews.
