We are all told that the Book of Mormon was written for our day and to liken the scriptures to ourselves. But to see that the Book of Mormon is literally a blueprint for today was mind blowing! The parallels were staring me in the face for years. I simply lacked the ability to bring all of them into focus. This DVD does just that! You will not view the Book of Mormon the same again! Knowing it is literally a blue print has renewed my appreciation for this sacred scripture and deepened my gratitude for a loving Heavenly Father who wouldn't send his precious children to earth without help and guidance--which is precisely what the scriptures are meant to be. We simply must have the willingness to open them, read them, and learn from them! He is providing us with the tools necessary to successfully complete our journey here on earth, are we willing to use them?

My 9 and 13 year old sons joined me shortly after I started this DVD, and we were all intrigued. As we watched, I had to hit the pause button several times as they asked questions and wanted to discuss what we were learning. It gave us greater appreciation for the blessings of freedom and accountability that we have in America. Our family is even more motivated to continually study the Book of Mormon so that we can better understand what we must do to be a covenant keeping people. We appreciate the excellent research and work that was done to produce this DVD!

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the parallels of the Book of Mormon with our day. It's something I never would have figured out for myself, so I'm completely happy that it has been done for me. All right there! So much inspiration, research, and hard work has gone into the creation of this. Well done! I highly recommend this for every home.

We hear so often to liken the scriptures to our day and this DVD does just that. I thought as I watched" WOW", I was enlightened and given a greater desire to dig in for myself . This really is an inspired documentary with the correct objective to just help people understand how much the Book of Mormon really is for our day.

I got this movie and watched it with my family and I really do think that it is one of the best if not the best out there showing the scriptures and how they directly apply to our lives. I find it strange that no one else has made a video like this yet, but a huge WELL DONE should go to those that developed it. I will be buying more videos from the Joseph Smith Foundation in the future!

This video is a must see for individuals and families who regularly read the Book of Mormon, and it will also inspire anyone who desires to be so motivated. It’s an eye-opener to the truth that the Book of Mormon was written for our day, as explained by Mormon (Mormon 8:35). Viewing this DVD several times has greatly increased our testimony of the critical importance of the Book of Mormon as a parallel reference to events occurring right now. It also helps us understand and contemplate what we need to do to be prepared for the future. The insights gained from this DVD can be literally life-changing.

This video does an amazing job showing just bow the Book of Mormon really does apply to our day. Comparing the scriptures, modern church leaders physical evidence, and top notch production value, this film will help any viewer be motivated to make the teachings found in the Book of Mormon part of their life.

The DVD really helped me understand parallels of "The Book of Mormon" with our own American history.
It explains why "The Book of Mormon" is such an important book to read.
America is the covenant land, past and present.
