John Clark; with Matthew Roper and Wade Ardern (co-authors), The Foundation for Apologetic Information and Research (FAIR), 2005.
Virtually all LDS critics have claimed that, not only doesnn++t archaeology support the Book of Mormon, but that it confounds the Nephite scripture. Dr. John Clark, director of the New World Archaeological Foundation, examines this claim. Clark shows that while archaeological evidence weighed against the Book of Mormon in 1830, recent archaeological studies have now tipped the scales in favor of the Book of Mormon. While most items mentioned in the Book of Mormon were unknown from the New World archaeological record for the nearly a century after the book was translated, today the major of those items have received some archaeological verification.
John E. Clark, professor of anthropology at Brigham Young University, earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in anthropology from BYU. He received a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Michigan in 1994. In addition to his duties as a BYU professor, Clark is the director and editor of the New World Archaeological Foundation based in Chiapas, Mexico. He has published numerous articles, research reports, book reviews, and several books. Clark was born in Rupert, Idaho, and has lived in Idaho, Utah, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, and Mexico. He served a Spanish-speaking mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Arizona from 1971 to 1973. He and his wife, Sandra, are the parents of six children.
