Though the Book of Mormon is didactic with mostly two dimensional and superficial characters Hardy shows a way to recognize some of the greater complexities of the text by dipping below the surface of the words to observe the complex narrative structures developed by the internal narrators He shows how the narrative structures with all the interweavings complex and convoluted turnings still pull together into a cohesive text Hardy brings a lot of new and novel insights to the text though perhaps occasionally too creative but he s forgiven because of his other insightful observations He has picked up on numerous details that lifelong Mormons have probably missed Whether people believe the Book of Mormon was written by ancient American Israeli prophets or a composition by Joseph Smith Hardy s work clearly demonstrates that the text is much sophisticated than past critics have been willing to admit and it deserves much attention than it has received
