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.
