I want to apologize for the negative, critical review I wrote about Grant Palmer’s book, An Insiders View of the Mormon Origins. While I don’t share the authors beliefs on several topics, I believe I was ungenerous in my examination and treatment of his writing, and I would like to apologize to Mr. Palmer and to the publisher. I’m sorry this realization took me so long to come to.

Since after these years I don’t have the knowledge to make detailed changes, I no longer own the book, and I’m no longer actively involved with RationalFaiths, I have asked that this apology be placed on the web page in place of my former review. I hope my review has not caused undue harm.
