Product Description

Do you want to expand and deepen your study of the Book of Mormon? If so, you will find what you're looking for in this commentary written by gospel scholars D. Kelly Ogden and Andrew C. Skinner.

In this digital eBook bundle, the two volumes of verse-by-verse commentary have been brought together for more convenient study. This complete two-in-one eBook set offers a reader-friendly exploration of the book of scripture that is the keystone of our religion. It incorporates sound doctrinal commentary with quotations from General Authorities and explanations of difficult passages — all sprinkled generously with the authors' own experiences to illustrate great lessons and personal applications.

Interspersed with the commentary are feature articles that offer new glimpses into such topics as angels who have come to earth, names and titles of God, Israel and Zion in Latter-day Saint usage, the Isaiah chapters of First and Second Nephi, the allegory of the olive tree, prophecies of Christ, the importance of record keeping, the purpose of a covenant people, teachings regarding war, the sealing power, God as a God of miracles still today, the Americas as the promised land, and the love of God for all his children.

Highly informative and easy to read, this commentary on the Book of Mormon provides stimulating views that complement the scriptures. It will be treasured by anyone who wishes to understand more fully the teachings of those whom the Lord called in the land of promise to testify of him.

I greatly appreciate having this guide, particularly when reading 2 Nephi and the words of Isaiah. For the first time in reading, with this companion, I understand what I'm reading.

Disappointing

OK if you've never purchased another Book of Mormon study guide. But, I have purchased several and there seems to be little or no new information.And when they do quote a series of scriptures the do not format correctly, leaving only 2 or 3 words per line of type instead of running like you'd expect from your standard works.
I much prefer the David Ridges series "The Book of Mormon Made Easier". You get the same references and much more including many opportunities to be introspective by asking the right question. I hope the David Ridges series is converted to an ebook. And when it does, my suggestion would be to keep the scripture verses in one column and the commentary in a second column. That way, I can move freely back and forth between the two in a real "study" mode. To make it even better, allow me to insert some of my own favorite talks, quotes and scriptures into the ebook. Why don't ebooks really take advantage of the power they could provide to make the scriptures your own?

Very insightful!

This has helped me with my calling as a seminary teacher, more than most other tools at my disposal. I love how it is arranged and it answers questions I didn't know I had about things I've read a hundred times. Awesome reference!!

Marvelous insights and "footnotes" that strengthen testimony..

Well written and documented. Answers many questions that I have pondered on over the years. Wish everyone reading or rereading the Book of Mormon had this as an aid in their scripture study.
