Think U.S. elections are contentious? Try Nephite elections!

Elections have been on my mind recently, as I’m sure they have been on all of ours. 4 years ago, we experience the most divisive election in my lifetime. But by all available data, it looks like this one is...

Why the best part of the Book of Mormon is so short

“The crowning event recorded in the Book of Mormon is the personal ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ among the Nephites soon after His resurrection.” This marvelous event was followed by 300 years of idyllic peace. Of those righteous Nephites,...
