How the Book of Mormon Answers Questions of the Soul

The Book of Mormon, which members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (inadvertently referred to as the Mormon Church) testify is Another Testament of Jesus Christ, is a volume of scripture that is comparable to the Holy Bible. The Book of Mormon does not in any way detract from the teachings of the Bible, but in fact, the two volumes of scripture complement each other. What is taught in the pages of the Holy Bible is also taught in the Book of Mormon with added clarity to enable the diligent student of the scriptures to gain...

Book of Mormon societies parallel Mesoamerican civilizations

After 60 years of research, John L. Sorenson is convinced that the events in the Book of Mormon took place in a much smaller area than many believe. He has explored the anthropology of Mesoamerica, which is southern Mexico and northern Central America and has found conclusive evidence to support his theories. Sorenson is a professor emeritus of anthropology at Brigham Young University where he originated the program and headed it for fourteen years. Since his retirement he has researched and written about Mesoamerican archaeology. In 1985 he published a book, “An Ancient American Setting for the Book of...

Zeniff in the Book of Mormon

By Jan Zeniff 200-187 BC The story of Zeniff in the Book of Mormon is filled with mystery, intrigue and faith. He was a peacemaker, a man of integrity who attempted to negotiate rather than use force. He learned from his mistakes and became wise in his judgments. For example, after his people suffered affliction, he recognized that they had been “slow to remember the Lord our God” and was faithful from that time forward. He not only fought battles alongside his people, he also helped to bury the dead of both sides. After he was deceived, he became...
