Patrick is a chemical engineer who worked for The Dow Chemical Company for 36 years designing and building chemical plants before retiring to go to work for Huntsman Corp. to do the same. He received a master’s degree in chemical engineering from Brigham Young University. He served as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Southern Far East Mission—laboring in Hong Kong and Taiwan. He has served as a bishop, high councilor, scoutmaster, and in other callings in the LDS Church. He is married to the former Saundra Ann Temple, and they are the parents of six sons, sixteen grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. His hobbies include genealogy, racquetball, and archaeology.
This is Patrick’s second book related to the Book of Mormon—the first being The Zarahemla Puzzle—An Internal Geography which was first published in 2002. It is safe to say that this will not be his last!
Descripción del libro
The Plates of Brass will doubtless one day be as famous as the Dead Sea Scrolls, and their discovery will surely be as amazing. When they do come forth, they will likely be known—according to established convention—as the Plates of Joseph. This book is written to provide a timely introduction to these plates.
The Plates of Brass are a set of scriptures almost entirely unknown to the world today. They were kept by the Israelite tribe of Joseph and cover a period of time from the creation of the world to about 600 BC. They are similar to the Old Testament from Genesis to Jeremiah except that they are more complete and include the words of prophets unknown today.
A few years prior to the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians in 587 BC, Lehi and his family—being led by the Lord—left Jerusalem and traveled to the New World. They brought with them the Plates of Brass which served as their scriptures. The loss of these records from Jerusalem coincided with the destruction of the temple and other records kept at the temple.

This is the third edition of this book. The designs from the previous two editions are included below. Both designs are reasonably good, but can be improved upon. I also included a sample of Hieratic writing that was probably the language engraved on the plates.
The term "brass" as used in the Old Testament and in this case referred to any alloy of copper--not just the copper-zinc alloy that we call brass today. The most common "brass" alloy anciently was bronze, but it also included copper-gold alloys such as tumbaga that were very bright. The color for these plates should be more gold than "brassy."
