Jerry Grover's Translation of the "Caractors" Document Book of Mormon Central Presentation

I was blessed to be able to attend the Book of Mormon Central Conference in Provo, Utah last month. I will be sharing some of the amazing presentations from the conference on my blog starting with this one from Jerry Grover.  He explains how he has attempted a translation of the "caractors" document that is commonly referred to as the Anthon Transcript (although it definitely is not).  If you are familiar with the history of this document containing some of the caricatures from the "Gold Plates" that Joseph Smith used in the translation of the Book of Mormon than you will find Jerry's work extremely interesting.  As I followed Jerry's translation process copying the caricatures I couldn't help feel closer to the prophets of old who compiled the records contained in the Book of Mormon especially Mormon and Moroni.  Well done Jerry thanks for your work.
