When the Book of Abraham was first published to the world in 1842, it was published asa translation of some ancient records that have fallen into [Joseph Smiths] hands from the catacombs of Egypt, purporting to be the writings of Abraham while he was in Egypt, calledThe Book of Abraham, Written by his Own Hand, upon Papyrus. The resultant record was thus connected with the papyri once owned by Joseph Smith, though which papyrus of the four or five in his possession was never specified. Those papyri would likely interest only a few specialists except that they are bound up in a religious controversy. This controversy covers a number of interrelated issues, and an even greater number of theories have been put forward about these issues. Given the amount of information available, the various theories, and the variety of fields of study the subject requires, misunderstandings and misinformation often prevail. An Introduction to the Book of Abraham makes reliable information accessible to the general reader.
