Many thought-provoking insights into the imagery of Lehi’s dream/ Nephi’s vision, particularly on the mists of darkness and the great and spacious building.  Here are a few high-lights:

My Name Used to Be Muhammad.  

Tito Momen, with Jeff Benedict.


From the Author's Note:

"I was raised in a village in Nigeria where my family practiced a harsh form of Islam.  When I was a teenager my father sent me to a radical Islamic school in Syria.  Later I studied with members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt while pursuing a degree in Islamic studies.  It was there, of all places, that I discovered Christianity, a faith I had been taught to despise, along with Judaism.  I am the last person you might expect to become a Christian.  But I did.  And for that I was disowned by my family and sentenced to life in prison. . . .

"Although I was falsely imprisoned, beaten, and ridiculed, I don't harbor any bitterness.  Nor do I blame Islam.  I recognize that my life experience with Islam has been one of extremes in terms of intolerance and violence.  But there are millions of good and sincere Muslims in many countries who love God and family while practicing Islam in a tolerant and positive manner.  I consider them my brothers and sisters.  At the same time, I am indebted to Jesus Christ and countless Christians from many sects and churches who have accepted me.  This book is a tribute to their kindness."

Brother Momen's life journey is astounding to read.  He discovered Jesus Christ as his Savior through the Book of Mormon, and stayed true to that testimony through all his trials.

Read another excerpt from his book at 3 Nephi 11:14 in Book of Mormon Library.

Through 2 Nephi 2 with God

Lehi’s heartfelt “last lecture” to his rebellious sons contains sound doctrine for all of us in mortality.  He encourages them to choose God, to choose the freedom offered by Jesus Christ, the Redeemer.

Seven Claims of the Book of Mormon:  A Collection of Evidences.  

John A. Widstoe and Franklin S. Harris, Jr.
































This book was first published in 1937, eighty years ago, and over a hundred years after the publication of the Book of Mormon.

The “Seven Claims” are:


1.  The Book of Mormon had a miraculous origin.

2.  The Book of Mormon was written on gold plates in Reformed Egyptian by a succession of historians.

3.  There existed a populous American civilization in antiquity.

4.  The American aborigines are in part of Hebrew descent.

5.  Jesus Christ visited the American continent.

6.  The contents of the Book of Mormon are inspired.

7.  The Book of Mormon offers a certain test of its authenticity.


Each of the claims has several sub-topics.  The book is, indeed, a collection.  Much of it is composed of quotes by scholars.  The author explains, “During the last century a host of capable students have set forth numerous evidences in support of Mormon claims.  These reports are scattered over the whole field of Mormon literature and therefore often inaccessible to students and defenders of the Gospel who are engaged in travel and unable to carry with them a sufficient supply of books.  This book was prepared in London within easy reach of the library of the British Museum, and it was possible therefore to check every quotation against original sources.”

It is interesting to read this snapshot of what was known about the Book of Mormon’s claims at this time period.  In the intervening years much more evidence has been found supporting the Book of Mormon.  No matter the accumulation of evidence, it doesn’t seem to create faith in the minds of readers.  The last chapter, expounding, of course, on Moroni’s promise of a receiving a witness from the Spirit, is always the key to that.

This is by far the most important page to read on this website.

This message is vital for everyone to read and understand!
