New ebook available: The Legal Cases in the Book of Mormon, by John W. Welch

04.23.2015 | The Maxwell Institute

There are more legal trials couched in the Book of Mormon narrative than you’ve likely ever realized. Some of the Book of Mormon’s most memorable figures—from Abinadi, Alma, and Amulek to Sherem, Nehor, and Korihor—make their stand in the context of trial.

The Legal Cases in the Book of Mormon by John W. Welch draws on a wealth of research about Old Testament legal proceedings to closely examine each Book of Mormon trial scene. The book is now available in digital editions for the first time.

New textual possibilities open up as Welch situates the Book of Mormon’s legal cases within the context of the ancient legal world more broadly.
