Exploring the Book of Mormon in America’s Heartland, by Rod L. Meldrum (2011)

220 Pages 11 x 9 Full Color Case bound Heirloom Edition.

Over 300 photos, works of art, artifacts, maps, charts, scripture and commentary introduce the reader to the growing body of evidence that suggests the very real possibility of a North American setting for the events of the Book of Mormon.

From Adam-ondi-Ahman to the City of Enoch; from the restoration of the Gospel to building of the New Jerusalem in the latter-days — the “Heartland” of America has long been the setting of sacred and significant events in the course of human history.

Thirty-six scriptural prophecies and promises parallel the descriptions of the ancient Nephite land and a latter-day “Promised Land.” Joseph Smith’s historically documented statements are consistent with those prophecies.

Emerging scientific research strengthens the assertion that large agrarian societies once flourished in North America during the Jaredite and Nephite eras. The research, conducted primarily by non-LDS scientists, is revealing remarkable correlations of culture, achievement and destruction among these ancient peoples.

The research captured by this book spans the breadth of prophecy, scripture, early Church history, archaeology, anthropology, architecture, fortifications, trade, religion, metallurgy, DNA, horticulture, population movements by sea and by land, geographic topologies, building materials, astronomical alignments, mythology and much more.

Did you know, that in order to live the Law of Moses a culture must make use of the Lunar calendar? That is the only way to know the exact Holy Days such as Shavout, Passover, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, etc. It is a well established fact that the Mayan (pre, classic and post) all utilized calendars that were either solar or non-astronomical. Remarkably, the only known ancient civilization in the Western Hemisphere to use a lunar calendar was the Hopewell Mound Builders a.k.a. Nephites! (Alma 16:4)
