Ask and Ye Shall Receive

Here's Russell Arben Fox's reply to my post requesting pro-Latter Day Saint sources explicating, defending, or explaining away the Book of Mormon's history of Mesoamerica; check out the extensive comments on my post as well, and this post at Times and Seasons. (Here's a good place to start if you want to know how believers respond to objections to the Book of Mormon's authenticity.) I can't promise that I'll wade my way through the recommended material all that quickly; I can promise to minimize blanket dismissals of Mormonism until I'm better informed as to the pro-LDS side of the argument.
