"I want to say to you, read the book, the Pearl of Great Price, and read the Book of Abraham. The Pearl of Great Price I hold to be one of the most intelligent, one of the most religious books that the world has ever had; but more than that, to me the Pearl of Great Price is true in its name. It contains an ideal of life that is higher and grander and more glorious than I think is found in the pages of any other book unless it be the Holy Bible. It behooves us to read these things, understand them: and I thank God when they are attacked, because it brings to me, after a study and thought, back to the fact that what God has given He has given, and He has nothing to retract." - Levi Edgar Young, Conference Report (April 1913), 74

Videos

The following videos are independently produced by organizations from various conferences, or by individuals, and are generally apologetic in nature (defined by Merriam-Webster as a "systematic argumentative discourse in defense (as of a doctrine)," or "a branch of theology devoted to the defense of the divine origin and authority of Christianity"), relating to the Book of Abraham.  While I generally support the individuals and organizations in the following videos, I may not necessarily agree with every assertion or conclusion reached therein.  Overall, however, I believe we share the same assurance regarding the truthfulness of the Book of Abraham as a divinely inspired book translated by the Lord's servant and first prophet of this latter-day dispensation, Joseph Smith, Jr.
