I have finally finished Abraham in Egypt. I think if I can finish this monster, I can finish any book. I have a much deeper appreciation for the great patriarch. There is so much to learn from his life. I am also grateful for Joseph Smith. This book is further proof is his prophetic calling. The way the Book of Abraham fits into Egyptian history, other Abrahamic texts found after Joseph's translations, and history in general further witnesses to me that he is a prophet.
Great book. Challenging, but great.
Now...on to something a little more mindless for a while.
