The Golden Plates
The Book of Mormon was published in 1830. For the typical person of that day, the story of a book written on gold plates was outrageous. Consider the learned response of a prominent anti-Mormon critic, Reverend Martin Thomas Lamb: “No such records were ever engraved upon golden plates, or any other plates, in the early ages”[M.T. Lamb, *The Golden Bible, or, the Book of Mormon: Is It from God?* (New York: Ward & Drummond, 1887), p. 11].
Reverend Lamb wrote this in 1830, does anyone know if ancient metal plates with writing on them have been found since 1887?
