God in the Book of Mormon - a Tour of Discovery

Through the Book of Mormon with God

a Tour of Discovery


If you’ve already read the Book of Mormon, I hope you will enjoy this guided tour and see it with new eyes.

You may have flown over the Book of Mormon and admired the contours and beauty of the historical narrative and the Christ-centered teachings.

You may have driven through the Book of Mormon with a Sunday school class, and found meaning and personal direction in the doctrinal teachings and the individual people and their struggles and triumphs.

You may have taken a bicycle tour, and learned about the abundance of evidence that supports the truth of the Book of Mormon, and how it correlates with the teachings of the Bible.

This is a walking tour.  We will not read every verse, but only those which refer to God.  We will not peek under every single rock, but we will seek to discover, verse by verse, how the Rock Himself is manifested on every page.

The Book of Mormon is the record of God's dealings with a group of people, and with individuals in that group.  It is a history, but a history of God's interactions, not just a story of names, dates, places, and events.  

The Book of Mormon has the words of God and the words of prophets describing God's actions and attributes.  

God is mentioned every 1.8 verses in the Book of Mormon.  If He is spoken of so often, we may assume that the Book of Mormon tells us a great deal about Him.

Enjoy this guided tour through the Book of Mormon.  We will stop and examine every verse which mentions God, whether this means God the Father, God the Son, or God the Holy Ghost.
