Isaiah in the Book of Mormon, Including Deutero-Isaiah

I have been unable to find a quick reference for all of the passages from the Bible's book of Isaiah in the Book of Mormon.  So I put one together, below. I've also identified whether the Isaiah passages cited in the Book of Mormon come from the person known by scholars as "Deutero" (or Second) Isaiah.  Deutero-Isaiah comprises chapters 40-55 of Isaiah, and were likely written during the time of the Babylonian Captivity (587 BC to 538 BC).

You've perhaps noticed that the Babylonian Captivity happened after Lehi and his family left the land of Jerusalem.  Does that cause problems for the authenticity of the Book of Mormon?  I don't think so, and I'll explain that in a later post.

"Mormon Leaks": What They Really Said-Senator Gordon Smith Discusses Politcs

A new channel has recently appeared on YouTube, entitled Mormon Leaks, whose goal it seems
 is to do damage to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  What I've seen so far, however, will do much to improve the respect that people everywhere will have for the LDS Church and its leaders.  So, rather than believe the exaggerations and other criticisms leveled at the videos by detractors from the Church, I encourage you to simply watch them yourself.

In this article, I will explain the high points of the episode entitled "In Which They Discuss Politics With Senator Gordon Smith".  The presentation was filmed in February of 2009.
