Hardcover: 544 pages
One of the stunning aspects of Dr. Hugh Nibley's genius was his
persistent sense of wonder. That trait induced him to range widely
through very disparate subjects of study- all covered in volume 17 of
The Collected Works of Hugh Nibley on Himself, Others, and the Temple.
In this compilation of materials, most of which have been published
previously outside the Collected Works volumes, Nibley explores the
ancient Egyptians, the temple, the life sciences, world literature,
ancient Judaism, and Joseph Smith and the Restoration. The contents of
this volume illustrate the breadth of his interest through
autobiographical sketches, interviews, book reviews, forewords to
books, letters, memorial tributes, Sunday School lessons, and various
writings about the temple.
