Product Description

Under the guidance of some of the best thinkers on the Book of Mormon, the Abinadi narrative springs to life as each chapter approaches Abinadi's story and words from a different perspective. Whether viewed through a sociopolitical, literary, theological, philosophical, or historical lens, new insights and a new appreciation for the richness of Abinadi's discourse will help readers reignite their passion for the beauty and depth of the Book of Mormon.

This volume is written for an informed, Latter-day Saint audience and seeks to fill a gap in high-quality research and writing on the Book of Mormon. It is produced by members of Brigham Young University's Book of Mormon Academy, a group of scholars dedicated to research on the Book of Mormon. Each of the members brings a different area of expertise to bear on the Abinadi narrative. As that narrative is viewed from a variety of angles, its richness, beauty, and profound meaning come more clearly into focus.

A Wonderful Book of Mormon Resource
By , Submitted on 2018-04-25

I was very happy to see a wide range of approaches in this book that were used in approaching the story of Abinadi. This includes historical, literary, textual, and theological approaches which provide great depth and nuance to an already fascinating account. No matter your academic background or interests, I can almost guarantee that you'll find something worthwhile in this volume. Highly recommended!
