In this engaging volume, renowned gospel scholar and teacher Susan Easton Black explores more than 400 questions — many inspired by her own students — about the Book of Mormon. The book is organized into six chapters that address questions that enhance your knowledge of the coming forth of the Book of Mormon and how this sacred scripture testifies of Christ. These chapters also include queries about Mormon’s abridgment, the plates of Ether, the small plates of Nephi, and Moroni’s final additions to the Book of Mormon. Dr. Black’s answers illuminate and enhance the scriptural text, and many address more complex doctrinal topics in a succinct and sensitive manner.
Colorfully illustrated with more than 80 images, this book is an ideal companion for students and teachers in a variety of settings, from seminary and gospel doctrine class to personal and family scripture study. The research in this book is backed by extensive documentation as well as Dr. Black’s deep and evident love for the subject matter developed over decades of careful study.
