“It is by no means improbable that some future person will ask a question something like this: What book about an American of the nineteenth century has exerted the most powerful influence upon the destinies of his countrymen? And it is by no means impossible that the answer to that interrogatory may be thus written: The ABC’s of Science and Mormonism by Mithryn.” – Complete misquote and rehash of the quote by Josiah Quincy, Jr., Figures of the Past, 1883. Which by the way, Joseph Smith Jr. was interviewed for a textbook and told Josiah Quincy about it before Josiah wrote this; so Josiah here is trying to look prophetic, but the textbook was never printed.
The wonderful people over at Doubtsy have finished formatting The ABC’s of Science and Mormonism into book form and made it available via Amazon.com!
Now if you want to hand back a copy of a book when your relatives give you the latest Deseret Book wonder, or perhaps want to look smart in the middle of Sacrament Meeting while surreptitiously learning why the speaker for the day is entirely wrong (with footnotes and sources) you need look no further.
In addition, I will be speaking Friday at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. at Sunstone on July 29th I will be signing any books purchased and brought to Sunstone with a unique never-seen-before Mormon History fact (wayyyy better than just an autograph).
Kindle versions are also available now. Yes, the print version is more expensive but I actually make a lot less off of it, most of the money goes for paper and things. But having an actual physical book has a special appeal.
Want the free version? Here are the links to the old, not-updated (boo!) no-shiny picture versions of the first 10 of the ABC’s:
H is for Hemisphere or Heartland, if you prefer
