90 years ago today - Sep 16, 1933

A Deseret News Church Section full-page article, "The Problem of Isaiah in the Book of Mormon" by Sidney B. Sperry and H. Grant Vest. This is an example of the LDS leadership's delayed acceptance of B.H. Robert's recommendation a decade earlier to openly confront the textual problems in Mormon scriptures. Roberts dies eleven days after this article. On 30 Sept. the Church Section prints "The Synoptic Problem in Its Relation To Modern Revelation," and "The Johannine Problem In Its Relation To Modern Revelation" on 7 Oct.
