For those of you who haven’t read the biography Hugh Nibley: A Consecrated Life, written by Boyd Jay Petersen, I highly recommend it. It is a fascinating read into the life of one the greatest scholars of the LDS Church. And it is now available as an e-book for reading on your iPad, Kindle, Nook, or other e-reader, for only $9.99. See the links below:
I second the recommendation. There are few biographies I read more than once, but I have read Nibley’s bio at least four times, and have read selected chapters much more. It is a well-written portrayal of a man who was not only a top-notch scholar and a man of great faith, but whose fascinating personality was the stuff of legend. And now it’s available at a price that can only be described as a steal.
