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.

This volume is the first of a two-volume, 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, and prophecies of Christ.

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.

Great Book.

The authors are among the tops in the Church. This is a great book as far as the content. It does have one problem with function. The copy function doesn't work. It highlights the text and the copy tab shows it copying, but when I try to paste to a document there is nothing to paste. The information in this book is too valuable not to be able to have this function. I hope you can fix it.

I love it!
