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.
