Question: "How should Christians view the Book of Mormon?" Answer: When Mormon missionaries (properly called Latter Day Saints or simply "LDS") come to your door, they will often offer a free copy of the Book of Mormon and tell you about its author, Joseph Smith.

Smith, they will say, translated the Book of Mormon from golden plates he dug up in a hill in New York in the early s. Although we have not called this a chiasmus, for a discussion of chiasmus in the Book of Mormon, see John W.

Second, Book of Mormon authors rarely mentioned weather, and when Mormon did (Alma ), he mentioned “some seasons,” not just the two in Central America (rainy and dry). Third, this argument, if applied consistently, precludes Central America as a possible setting because the text never once mentions volcanoes, jungles, jade, tapirs, or.

Discussion regarding the historicity of the Book of Mormon often focuses on archaeological issues, some of which relate to the large size and the long time span of the civilizations mentioned in the book.

A contemporary Mormon view is that these civilizations rose and fell in Mesoamerica. Civilizations of their magnitude and duration would be expected to leave extensive archaeological records.

Elder Price is a shining example of clean-cut, polite, devoted Mormonism while Elder Cunningham is scrappy, clumsy, and a bit of a loner just looking for a friend.
