Jonathan Neville, author of the acclaimed historical book, The Lost City of Zarahemla, which finally unlocked the mystery of how Book of Mormon geography was shifted from Joseph Smith’s North American setting to Mesoamerica, has now completed one of the most informative books ever shedding a flood of light and evidence onto the subject of Book of Mormon history.
In the year 322 A.D., an 11-year-old boy–a “sober child ”who was “quick to observe” –was given a life-changing mission by a Prophet of God. The boy, named Mormon, and his father embarked on a journey across their nation to the city of Zarahemla.
Mormon observed his people, learned their history, led them in battle, and abridged their sacred records. He then left the record for his son Moroni to complete. Moroni buried the finished plates and then, 1400 years later near the small town of Palmyra, New York, revealed them to Joseph Smith, who translated them.
In this non-fiction book by Jonathan Neville, author of The Lost City of Zarahemla, readers will learn about Book of Mormon lands the way young Mormon did–by traveling across America. They will discover the settings for Book of Mormon events in what Moroni called “this north country.” Moroni’s America offers new insights on well-known verses. It is the ideal companion for your Book of Mormon study in 2016.
