Of All Things!: A Nibley Quote Book Reviews
Although Nibley has a great sense of humor, and is extremely well-read in a number of languages, when he starts talking about proof for Mormon scripture he uses shoddy scholarship.To understand Nibley's approach to scholarship, see:Salmon, Douglas F. "Parallelomania and the Study of Latter-day Scripture: Confirmation, Coincidence, or the Collective Subconscious? Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought 33, no. 2 (Summer 2000): 129-156.For the faithful Mormon, this book has some excellent quotes.
Good collection but tempting to only get the highlights and none of the back thoughts and deeper insights.
I call this book "extract of Nibley" because how can you possibly do justice to Hugh Nibley by a brief quotation. On the plus side, many of the quotations do run half a page, and occasionally a page long. Still, it is just enough to tantalize.
A good way to get into Hugh Nibley. Features many great quotes from the best of his writings. Water in a parched world.
Pithy statements by topic. Fun for those who have read Nibley or ever had the chance to hear him teach.
Lots of great stuff, makes me want to read more from him and to, well, learn more about everything :-)
This book is great for refernece of any of Nibley's writings, his quotes are powerful and theologically actue
