So here is a link that very straight-forwardly answers a lot of questions that I have always had about the Book of Abraham. Its easy to find critics views online, but that is not very interesting. It is much more interesting to believe in something and find out why, than to go around discrediting everything difficult. Like George McDonnald says "Christianity has not been tried and found wanting, it has been found difficult and therefore left untried".
The only thing not mentioned here about the facsimiles being not really about Abraham I read Michael Rhodes idea that they could have been some things Joseph had in his collection that resembled closest to what he may have seen in revelation- and got published (thoses scenes are common it seems). It sold the Times and Seasons paper.
