Put simply, this book is about how the Book of Mormon teaches us to read the Book of Mormon. Such simplicity, however, belies the careful, complex reading initiated in An Other Testament. Spencer's work is disciplined by an unrivaled attention to the structural, thematic, and literary details of the Book of Mormon. His book is a primer on all we have afield to see and the richness of his reading implicitly chastens us for having failed even to look. Spencer argues for the importance of a typological reading of the Book of Mormon, and traces the tension between the two types of typological reading promoted by the Book of Mormon itself: one focused principally on connecting Christ to the world historical unfolding of the Israelite covenant, the other focused principally on connecting Christ to the everyday life of the individual believer. Any who are interested in a hermeneutics of Mormon scripture will find An Other Testament rich reading indeed.
