I found myself following his footnotes frequently to articles I had no or little knowledge of. His writing in this work is clear and more concise than in some of his other writings for a different audience.

Hugh Winder Nibley (March 27, 1910 – February 24, 2005) was an American scholar and Mormon apologist who was a professor at Brigham Young University (BYU) for nearly 50 years. He was a prolific author, and wrote apologetic works supporting the archaeological, linguistic, and historical claims of Joseph Smith. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), and wrote and lectured on LDS scripture and doctrinal topics, publishing many articles in the LDS Church magazines.

The apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians, "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal" (1 Corinthians 13:1). Since then, the terms "tinkling cymbals" and "sounding brass" have often been used to signify words of emptiness and confusion--describing perfectly most writings critical of the Latter-day Saints. Trained in history and interested in classical rhetoric, Hugh Nibley brings a broad perspective to his study of anti-Mormon writing. Included in this volume are: * "No, Ma;'am, That's Not History," Nibley's response to Fawn Brodie's widely touted biography of Joseph Smith * "Censoring the Joseph Smith Story," in which Nibley takes on such anti-Mormon writers as Henry Caswall, John C. Bennett, and J.B. Turner * "The Myth Makers" in which Nibley presents "the case of the World versus Joseph Smith" with a host of anti-Mormon witnesses whose testimonies become a hopeless mass of contradictions and absurdities * "Sounding Brass," which focuses on the story and anti-Mormon writings of Ann Eliza Webb Dee Young Denning, divorced wife of Brigham Young. It also discusses the Danite theme in anti-Mormon writing. In all these works, Nibley explains and defends the life and teachings of the prophets. His skill at recognizing and dissecting flawed arguments allows him to separate the chaff from the wheat. He know the scriptures. He knows that Joseph's name would be known for good and evil, but he has clearly chosen to be numbered among those who sought counsel from the Prophet. He has little patience with those who write to persuade others to dismiss either the prophets or their divine messages.

Supreme service and excellent reading!

Nibley is unsurpassed in his scholarly research and investigation, in tracing to the very roots the origins and exposing the damnable falsehoods fabricated by evil men and women to malign the Prophet Joseph Smith to keep people from the truth.

Gave to my husband for Christmas and he just loves it! He is almost done with it and just loves all he is learning from it and the insight!

In this thorough book, Nibley reveals the real stories behind criticism of the LDS (Mormon) Church. Once you understand where some of these tales originated, the weak foundations of the most frequently-heard attacks on the Church become crystal clear, and sometimes sadly laughable. Nibley's dry humor is delightful and his enthusiasm is contagious. This book is a MUST-read if you are interested in the LDS Church. It is particularly important if you've been misled by the critics. Read this book and check Nibley's historical sources before you believe what you read elsewhere.

Here we have Hugh Nibley at his most polemic. This is a collection of writings responding to anti-Mormon literature ranging from Fawn McKay Brodies "No Man Knows My History", to the apostate critics of the early church, to the writings of one Brigham Young's wives (divorced wife). Nibley's writing is sharp, is often quite funny, and some critics have found it a bit harsh. I found it all delightful.

Again, the audience Nibley is writing for is not unbelievers. He is not interested in trying to win over people who have every intention of never being won over. Instead, he is providing assurance and help for those who have been hit over the head again and again that their faith and belief is foolish. Nibley demonstrates that their faith makes a great deal of sense. He helps us see the inherent contradictions within the arguments of various critics and how they end up recycling the same false stories again and again. What is quite interesting is that these critics all cite each other hoping to gain credibility by these citations. However, the stories are falsehoods based upon little more than rumor and malice.

This is a big book and while it is a great deal of fun, I don't think it is Nibley's most important work. However, if you find yourself becoming confused by writings critical of Joseph Smith and the church, here is a good place to go to help you find solid ground.
I really don't think we can put Hugh Nibley into a book, much less a box. But this book comes in third, after "Approaching Zion," and "Temple and Cosmos: Beyond This Ignorant Present."
This book covers the Joseph Smith ground, and deals with the long and noble tradition of telling tales about Joseph Smith. It is really an omnibus reprint of several other books.
"No Ma'am, That's Not History." This is Nibley's famous response to Fawn Brodie's "No Man Knows My History." This book, or booklet, can be read in one setting, but it is a sound and full refutation of Brodie's rather overrated book. I have read it, and, no, it is not a slam-dunk. Aside from its original purpose of outlining Brodie's absurdities, it also demonstrates Nibley's methodology in responding to the critics: he has the primary sources in order, and uses a scathing and well-honed logic to lustrate his points. This mini-book is a great gateway for Nibley novices.
"A Note on F. M. Brodie." This article rounds out Nibley's discussion on Brodie, and serves as a coda and outro to the previous section.
"Censoring the Joseph Smith Story." This is one of the funniest history you will ever read. Nibley runs among the footnotes of Anti-Mormon literature, and illustrates how the stories of Joseph Smith have been embellishes and exaggerated over time, as one anti-Mormon critic mindlessly quotes another, without ever reading the primary documents. It is a good illustration of not only the perils of plagiarism, but of the childhood game of "Telephone."
"The Myth Makers." This book is the transcript of the celebrated court case of "Joseph Smith v. The World." We Nibley's Shakespearian background shines through in this acidic and stinging satire. It reads as a play, or a Socratic dialogue, where every one of Smith's critics since Dogberry takes the stand against Joseph Smith. The key, and the very subtle point to this book, is that Joseph Smith never takes the stand.
"Sounding Brass." This book deals specifically about the tall tales surrounding Brigham Young, and his plural wives. It deals with the later anti-Mormon literature, especially about the book "Wife No. 19." The crown jewel of this book is Part 3: How To Write An anti-Mormon Book (A Handbook for Beginners). Nibley lists the 35 rules essential for any and every anti-Mormon book. I think Rule 17: "In Place of Evidence, Use Rhetoric!" (p. 495ff) should be memorized by every undergrad everywhere, since we fall prey to rhetoric so easily. One I understood this rule, my mind was reborn into a whole new and better organ. There is a difference between rhetoric and evidence. Rhetoric is just a series of arguments, rationales, ratiocinations, and philosophies without any evidence, data, facts, or proof. Confusing evidence and rhetoric is confusing a cookie with a cookie sheet. Your jaw will thank you for choosing the right one. This one paragraph alone justifies the books existence, and makes it worth our hard-earned dollar.
This book is a great gift for anyone curious about anti-Mormon literature, or if you yourself are curious about an intelligent response, or weather there is any intelligence at all in this ever popular genre of books.
