Today we sit down with LDS scholar and author David Bokovoy. David is the Author of “Authoring the Old Testament : Genesis – Deuteronomy”. We break down what scripture is and isn’t, leveling false assumptions along the way. We discuss how to handle paradigm shifts when new info makes previous paradigms untenable. We also address whether the Book of Mormon is in the same boat as the Bible in terms of historical criticism.
