Grammatical rules such as the use of the generic male pronoun were not meaningless standards; they had taught me to unconsciously, reflexively, think of men as the default human. It was quite the wakeup call. Lots of people have been turning to James Baldwin recently and, you have to hope, many of them have had their minds changed by his stark analysis of racial politics and history. It has been rediscovered, reassessed and reprinted now because it speaks powerfully to our historical moment.
The Restless Clock: A History of the Centuries Old Argument Over What Makes Living Things Tick by Jessica Riskin explores the history of ideas about agency — the capacity of living organisms to act in the world — and its connection to mechanistic thought, nature as machine.
She convincingly demonstrates how the view of nature as inert passive matter was theologically based and that it contrasted with the view of nature as mechanical and active. The book made me rethink several assumptions I had about the history of what we now call biology and brought further nuance to contemporary debates about machine and organic intelligence.
His book is about language. I realised I had been complicit in a system of linguistic entrapment whereby diagnostic language, the language of medicine and madness, the othering function of our deeply flawed system for helping and speaking about people with psychiatric illnesses, is causing great harm.
He shows us how this harm is enacted, from individual gestures to governmental ideology. I therefore finished the book politically enlightened and personally inspired, not just in the context of mental healthcare, but in all my encounters with people, in the words I choose to use. Reading books I always fold the corners on pages that I want to return to, the pages that contain lines I need to revisit — want to redigest. Scalding and illuminating. She is brilliant on ugliness, on anarchism and rebellion, but especially important on porn. On her experiences selling sex, transactional sex in general.
Women and money, women and their pleasure. Appiah focuses on deconstructing these truths on the basis of brief family stories, his own personal experiences, or experiences that he was told about.
The book analyses our ideas about race, gender, culture, religion, nationality and social class, and suggests that all these categories are lies that serve to unite us against those who are declared different in an age of extreme polarisation. What Appiah does is to debate such concepts, seeking out their histories and exploring their ambiguities.
The author deals with the complex subject of ideas about identity — possibly the most important issue of the modern age — in a way that is vivid and appealing. The African American lesbian-feminist poet and essayist Audre Lorde is enjoying a renaissance. I first encountered her books in the s when she was hugely influential in validating my desire to write as a young black feminist who felt like an outsider in British society.
The book describes their journey across the Arabian peninsula , and then to the promised land, the Americas, by ship. Following this section is the Words of Mormon. The Book of Third Nephi is of particular importance within the Book of Mormon because it contains an account of a visit by Jesus from heaven to the Americas sometime after his resurrection and ascension.
The text says that during this American visit, he repeated much of the same doctrine and instruction given in the Gospels of the Bible and he established an enlightened, peaceful society which endured for several generations, but which eventually broke into warring factions again. The portion of the greater Book of Mormon called the Book of Mormon is an account of the events during Mormon's life. Mormon is said to have received the charge of taking care of the records that had been hidden, once he was old enough. The book includes an account of the wars, Mormon's leading of portions of the Nephite army, and his retrieving and caring for the records.
Mormon is eventually killed after having handed down the records to his son Moroni. According to the text, Moroni then made an abridgment called the Book of Ether of a record from a previous people called the Jaredites. The Jaredite civilization is presented as existing on the American continent beginning about BC,  —long before Lehi's family arrived shortly after BC—and as being much larger and more developed.
The Book of Moroni then details the final destruction of the Nephites and the idolatrous state of the remaining society. The Book of Mormon contains doctrinal and philosophical teachings on a wide range of topics, from basic themes of Christianity and Judaism  to political and ideological teachings.

Jesus is mentioned every 1. Stated on the title page, the Book of Mormon's central purpose is for the "convincing of the Jew and Gentile that Jesus is the Christ, the Eternal God, manifesting himself unto all nations. The book describes Jesus, prior to his birth, as a spirit "without flesh and blood", although with a spirit "body" that looked similar to how Jesus would appear during his physical life. See Godhead Latter Day Saints.
In furtherance of its theme of reconciling Jews and Gentiles to Jesus, the book describes a variety of visions or visitations to some early inhabitants in the Americas involving Jesus. Most notable among these is a described visit of Jesus to a group of early inhabitants shortly after his resurrection. In the narrative, at the time of King Benjamin about BC , the Nephite believers were called "the children of Christ".
Many other prophets in the book write of the reality of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. In the Bible, Jesus spoke to the Jews in Jerusalem of "other sheep" who would hear his voice. The book delves into political theology within a Christian or Jewish context. Among these themes are American exceptionalism. According to the book, the Americas are portrayed as a "land of promise", the world's most exceptional land of the time. On the issue of war and violence, the book teaches that war is justified for people to "defend themselves against their enemies". However, they were never to "give an offense," or to "raise their sword The book recommends monarchy as an ideal form of government, but only when the monarch is righteous.
The book supports notions of economic justice, achieved through voluntary donation of "substance, every man according to that which he had, to the poor.
The Crime That Shocked Dickens’s London
Joseph Smith characterized the Book of Mormon as the "keystone" of Mormonism, and claimed that it was "the most correct of any book on earth". As part of this effort, a new edition was printed with the added subtitle "Another Testament of Jesus Christ". The importance of the Book of Mormon was a focus of Ezra Taft Benson , the church's thirteenth president.
Hinckley challenged each member of the church to re-read the Book of Mormon before the year's end. Since the late s, church members have been encouraged to read from the Book of Mormon daily.
The LDS Church encourages discovery of the book's truth by following the suggestion in its final chapter to study, ponder, and pray to God concerning its veracity. This passage is sometimes referred to as "Moroni's Promise". The Community of Christ , formerly known as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, views the Book of Mormon as an additional witness of Jesus Christ and publishes two versions of the book through its official publishing arm, Herald House : the Authorized Edition, which is based on the original printer's manuscript, and the Second Edition or "Kirtland Edition" of the Book of Mormon.
The Community of Christ also publishes a "Revised Authorized Edition", which attempts to modernize some language.

In , Community of Christ President W. Grant McMurray reflected on increasing questions about the Book of Mormon: "The proper use of The Book of Mormon as sacred scripture has been under wide discussion in the s and beyond, in part because of long-standing questions about its historical authenticity and in part because of perceived theological inadequacies, including matters of race and ethnicity. Veazey ruled out-of-order a resolution to "reaffirm the Book of Mormon as a divinely inspired record. This position is in keeping with our longstanding tradition that belief in the Book of Mormon is not to be used as a test of fellowship or membership in the church.
There are a number of other churches that are part of the Latter Day Saint movement. These groups all have in common the acceptance of the Book of Mormon as scripture. It is this acceptance which distinguishes the churches of the Latter Day Saint movement from other Christian denominations. Separate editions of the Book of Mormon have been published by a number of churches in the Latter Day Saint movement, along with private individuals and foundations not endorsed by any specific denomination.
Most of the archaeological, historical and scientific communities do not consider the Book of Mormon an ancient record of actual historical events. Most adherents of the Latter Day Saint movement consider the Book of Mormon to generally be a historically accurate account.
One of the more common recent arguments is the limited geography model , which states that the people of the Book of Mormon covered only a limited geographical region in either Mesoamerica , South America , or the Great Lakes area. The LDS Church has published material indicating that science will support the historical authenticity of the Book of Mormon.

The Book of Mormon was dictated by Joseph Smith to several scribes over a period of 13 months,  resulting in three manuscripts. The lost pages contained the first portion of the Book of Lehi ; it was lost after Smith loaned the original, uncopied manuscript to Martin Harris. The first completed manuscript, called the original manuscript, was completed using a variety of scribes. Portions of the original manuscript were also used for typesetting.

It was then discovered that much of the original manuscript had been destroyed by water seepage and mold. Surviving manuscript pages were handed out to various families and individuals in the s. Only 28 percent of the original manuscript now survives, including a remarkable find of fragments from 58 pages in The second completed manuscript, called the printer's manuscript , was a copy of the original manuscript produced by Oliver Cowdery and two other scribes.
Observations of the original manuscript show little evidence of corrections to the text. In , the manuscript was bought from Whitmer's grandson by the Community of Christ, known at the time as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Critical comparisons between surviving portions of the manuscripts show an average of two to three changes per page from the original manuscript to the printer's manuscript, with most changes being corrections of scribal errors such as misspellings or the correction, or standardization, of grammar inconsequential to the meaning of the text.
The printer's manuscript was not used fully in the typesetting of the version of Book of Mormon; portions of the original manuscript were also used for typesetting. The original manuscript was used by Smith to further correct errors printed in the and versions of the Book of Mormon for the printing of the book.
