Four cities on the plains of Siddim – Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim – disappeared without a trace. The best-known of these sister cities was Sodom. We have some information in the scriptures about what happened, but even less information in secular records. Significantly, Jesus Christ confirmed both the existence and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah during his earthly ministry. Suppose a history of what was happening in these cities had been kept on scrolls. What might have been recorded?
In Look Back at Sodom, Elder Neal A. Maxwell takes the factual events of these cities and puts them in a fictional setting, drawing upon the scriptural accounts to pull everything together.
Many today are as indecisive about the evils emerging around us, reluctant to renounce fully a wrong way of life, as was Lot's wife. While it was tragic for Lot's wife to look back, for our generation a hard look back at Sodom could save us from impending tragedies. Christ himself said, "Remember Lot's wife." This book helps us ponder all that the Savior implied with those three powerful words.
