I did a brief study of some of the names and found them interesting. Some of
the minor characters in scripture have the more compelling stories. The Bible
has stories about Ruth, Ester, Dianna, Rahab, Mary, Martha, Elizabeth, Phyllis,
et. Does the BoM have any heroine or women of note stories?
Independant Liberal; Admitedly there are not many heroines or individual
accounts of women in the Book of Mormon. Interestingly though, there is an
account of two women whose interlocking stories are contained in the same
chapter of the same book in the BofM. I'm refering to the book of Alma, chapter
19 wherein King Lamoni's wife (Queen) and a maid-servant, Abish, profoundly
influence the course of a kingdom regarding their subsequent conversion to
Christanity. There are other women singled out by name, but the account of
their exploits are not quite so positive and pure.
It's too bad that the Lamanite prophet-warrior named Zelph was not in the Book
of Mormon. It would have been fun to read about him. Oh well, at least Josh
Anderson gave us some insights in "The Book of Zelph."
Engrossing stories and maps - expanded my understanding of the Book of Mormon.
Great art work!
Brought the Book of Mormon alive for my teenage daughter and piqued her
interest. Art work extraordinary.
