Lending Fresh Ideas To A Scriptural Account
On Saturday, Nov. 1, Covenant will release possibly the most important series of LDS fiction since Gerald Lund’s “Work and the Glory” — H. B. (Heather) Moore follows up her successful “Out of Jerusalem” project with the “Prophets of the Promised Land” series. Every Primary child is familiar with the Arnold Friberg rendition of an elderly Abinadi appearing in King Noah’s court bound in shackles. That picture has been so embedded in our minds that up to this time no author has ever considered Abinadi might have been a young man with a family. … Book critic Charlene Hirschi holds her master’s in English from Utah State University.
