While nothing can take the place of a spiritual witness of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, an understanding of the correlating evidence of the book, especially as it relates to geography, can provide greater appreciation for this inspired book of scripture. In a fascinating two-CD talk set, popular speaker and author Dr. John L. Lund draws on his years of research and travel to present the case for the most likely area where the main Book of Mormon events took place. "Most people are greatly surprised at how much evidence and information there is about the geography in the Book of Mormon," says Dr. Lund, "both things that are internally there and things that have been said by prophets. For example, did you know that the Prophet Joseph Smith declared that the city of Zarahemla stood upon the land of Guatemala, which included southern Mexico in his day?" (See Times and Seasons 3:927.)
You'll discover how things such as mineral deposits, clothing, seeds, native traditions, geographical features, and even vultures are evidence of the hundreds of correlations between the Book of Mormon and the lands of Mesoamerica (Central America and southern Mexico). Join Dr. Lund for an intriguing and enlightening journey in Discovering the Lands of the Book of Mormon.

I grew up in the Church being taught that the Book of Mormon events took place around Palmyra, New York, but I recently heard a Church lesson on the Book of Mormon that indicated otherwise. A friend recommended this CD to me, and I was amazed at what Brother Lund teaches in showing that the Book of Mormon events likely took place in Mexico and Guatemala. This CD has changed my perspective and I have listened to it several times now. I would recommend it to anyone.
