One of the things I thought was interesting in the Bushman interview, was that he said that the Book of Mormon gives us the fullness of the Gospel (the Atonement) but not the fullness of Doctrine. He basically says that it’s obvious that it doesn’t give us the fullness of doctrine because the Book of Abraham and the Doctine & Covenants still needed to be delivered to us. He goes on to say that we’ll never stop receiving the fullness of doctrine through continuing revelation.
I thought that was a good explanation of the Mormon point of view. If he’s right, what about the Atonement does the Book of Mormon teach us that is not found in the Bible? Or am I or Bushman miscontruing this concept entirely?
