Lamoni, IA Authors Publish Mormon History Book

December 11, 2019 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
Caractors Unlocked, a new book by Mary Jo Jackel and Faye Shaw, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Caractors Unlocked is a verification of the statement made by ancient recorders that the Book of Mormon was written in "reformed Egyptian". This book provides proof that the "reformed Egyptian" is ancient demotic Egyptian. For 190 years, scholars have attempted to decipher the meaning of the "Caractors". This book gives breakthrough evidence that it is written in authentic ancient demotic Egyptian language. It probably comes from the lost 116 pages that had been entrusted to Martin Harris's keeping by Joseph Smith.
