Last month, on July 15, 2020, Book of Mormon Central published a blog post highlighting resources on the Book of Abraham made available through BMC’s Pearl of Great Price Central research initiative.

Recently, one of the project’s volunteer research consultants and peer reviewers, Egyptologist John Gee, sat down with BMC to give his thoughts on the Pearl of Great Price Central initiative and on Book of Abraham research more generally. Gee, who received a PhD in Egyptology from Yale University and is currently the William Gay Research Professor in the department of Asian and Near Eastern Languages at Brigham Young University, has contributed widely to Book of Abraham studies. Much of his research can be accessed for free on the Book of Abraham bibliography prepared by Pearl of Great Price Central.

“We have needed for some time a centralized repository of the major arguments about the Book of Abraham and the things that support its historical authenticity,” Gee said in the interview. “Pearl of Great Price Central has provided a nice repository for those articles and arguments and tries to provide them in a way that’s accessible to [the] general public.”
