The Book of Mormon details the history of two groups called the Nephites and the Lamanites. The identity of the Lamanites, including especially their identity in the latter-days among Native American peoples, remains an open question which readers of the Book of Mormon grapple with.

In the summer of 1829, a man named Thomas B. Marsh received a prompting that he should travel nearly 400 miles from Boston, Massachusetts, to upstate New York, not knowing what he would find there. Thomas stayed in western New York for three months to no avail. On his way home, someone he was staying with mentioned a “Golden Book” found by a young man named Joseph Smith. Thomas went to Palmyra, as the woman directed, and arrived at Grandin’s printshop just in time to get a fresh copy of the first sixteen pages of the Book of Mormon.

Readers unfamiliar with the Book of Mormon are sometimes surprised to find how much, from the beginning to the end, the book is about Jesus Christ. Its history was carefully written to build faith in Christ, its stories show how that faith can lead to righteous actions, and its sermons and teachings explain the intricacies of Christ’s doctrine. This intent focus on Jesus Christ helps readers see how His life and mission are central to God’s plan for all of His children.

Translations of the Book of Mormon into other languages have sometimes been miraculous, in their own small way. The translation of the Book of Mormon from English into Ukrainian is one such small miracle in Church history.

In 3 Nephi 27, Jesus Christ commanded His disciples to call His Church after His own name. In association with this commandment, Jesus taught several principles that help establish and clarify its doctrinal basis. These principles can help readers better understand why prophets and apostles in our own day have emphasized the correct name of Christ’s Church.

The lack of time related references in the record of Christ’s visitation at Bountiful may be due to the temple-related symbolism of His ministry.

The Book of Mormon purports to be a translation of an ancient record of God's dealing with some of the inhabitants of the New World. In order for the book to carry the theological power it proclaims to have, it must be grounded on its professed historicity.

Through Christ’s atonement, all people can become absolutely clean. All He asks is that each person willingly turn to Him, thank Him for all that He has done and cured and fixed, and continue to lovingly and faithfully walk the path that leads to Him.

Ultimately, we cannot always know why or how some similarities exist between the Book of Mormon and ancient Jewish texts written after Lehi’s time, but in at least some cases, ancient Jewish authors may have preserved things that go back to before the time of Lehi.

By correlating details between Mormon’s letter (recorded in Moroni 9) and Mormon’s own record, it is possible to determine a narrow window of history in which Mormon likely wrote his letter.
