Issues

Nibley, Hugh, "The Meaning of the Kirtland Egyptian Papers." - An excellent response to the issue of the so-called "Egyptian Alphabet and Grammar." Dr. John Gee has noted that there are a few errors and has provided an article at: http://maxwellinstitute.byu.edu/publications/books/?bookid=47&chapid=268.
Dr. Gee also indicates that a document identified by Dean Jessee is in the handwriting of W.W. Phelps, but is actually the handwriting of Frederick G. Williams, however most of Nibley's work still stands fairly well.

Lindsay, Jeff, "Questions about the Book of Abraham," Part One, Part Two, Part Three

Shirts, Kerry, On Thumbs & Wings & Other Things, (Book of Abraham, Facsimile #1).  Discusses anti-Mormon criticisms of the Lion Couch scene.
