MP3 File

Saturday, October 10, 2009 10:45 AM – 12:15 PM: “Authorship – Who Really Wrote the Book of Mormon?”

Craig Criddle is a Professor and Senior Fellow, Woods Institute for the Environment, Stanford University, having taught at Stanford since 1998. His research focus is environmental biotechnology.

Craig was born into a Mormon family in 1957, grew up as a typical Mormon boy, and served a mission to Uruguay in 1976-78. After his mission, he married in the Salt Lake Temple in 1979, and is the father of four children, grandfather to four.

Craig’s church callings included Elders quorum president, gospel doctrine teacher, ward clerk, and nursery leader. By the early 90’s, Craig had basically left the church intellectually, and he began an investigation of the origins of the Book of Mormon in 2000. What he learned about church origins contributed significantly to a divorce.

He formally resigned from the church in 2004, and in 2005 posted an on-line essay "Sidney Rigdon: Creating the Book of Mormon".

After publishing the essay, Craig began a collaboration with Stanford colleague Matt Jockers, which led to the eventual publication in December, 2008 of an LLC article on the Book of Mormon authorship with Matthew Jockers and Daniella Witten.
