Author James W. Lucas recently sat down with religion writer Peggy Fletcher Stack and Salt Lake Tribune managing editor David Noyce to discuss his new book, By Means of the Urim & Thummim.
The interview focused on the debate over whether Joseph Smith used a "seer stone" or other "interpreters" to translate the Book of Mormon as opposed to a "urim and thummim."
Lucas and co-author Jonathan Neville maintain the traditional story about the “urim and thummim” as the more plausible theory.
