Some six hundred years before Christ, a small band of travelers somewhere in the wastelands of the Arabian desert gathered in their leader's tent at his request. He had an extraordinary story to tell. It began: "Behold, I have dreamed a dream; or, in other words, I have seen a vision." The vision that Lehi recounted to his family set the course for the civilization — and the conflict — chronicled in the Book of Mormon. The images he recounted and his son Nephi's interpretation of their symbolic value give readers of the Book of Mormon a pattern by which to understand their own journey through mortality. Lehi's dream was more than an extraordinary story that a weary traveler told his family; it set the course for his family for centuries, and can set our course as well.
In Lehi's Dream, world-renowned artist James C. Christensen provides a visual journey through Lehi's account and Nephi's interpretation of that dream, which serves both as an overarching theme of the Book of Mormon and its civilizations and as a unique and deeply personal template by which we can understand the Savior's plan of salvation. With more than a dozen new images created by James C. Christensen specifically for the book, and thought-provoking text by gospel scholar Robert L. Millet, Lehi's Dream is a valuable new contribution to the world of Latter-day Saint art and literature.

This book is so enriching as the scripture story is presented like a children's story book, but interwoven between each page is insightful scriptural reference and commentary by Robert L Millet. The artwork by James C. Christensen adds detail to the story that leaves an impression on your mind. My children love this book, and have gained lots of worth from it. I also love it. It is a perfect book for everyone, from young children to adults.
