I was first introduced to this series in the early nineties by one of the authors, Joseph F. McConkie, when I was in a BofM class. The book series is fabulous and I still refer to it today. It's well worth every penny.
Very Valuable Resource

I sought and purchased copies of this set back when it was out of print because it is such a great resource! I am thrilled that it is now readily available to others! There are many quotes from prophets as well as footnote scriptures to help shed light on the depth of meaning in the Book of Mormon. Gives great help and insight and is very doctrinally sound.

A wonderful reference guide to the Book of Mormon. Insightful and well worth the $$. I am especially impressed with the fact that the authors included the original text before their commentary. This made the reading much easier and more conducive to scripture study.

Doctrinally Sound Commentaries
by Travis - reviewed on September 28, 2008
I have owned this set for about nine years now. I loved it the second I bought it. It has excellent commentary describing the doctrine that is taught in the B.o.M. It will add to anyone's gospel understanding, and leave them with a greater appreciation for this second witness of Christ. I highly recommend this set!
