Overview

Heavenly Evidence of Earthly Remains

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has not taken a position at this time regarding the geography of the Book of Mormon.

Overview

Heavenly Evidence of Earthly Remains

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has not taken a position at this time regarding the geography of the Book of Mormon. The absence of a position should not be interpreted as support for, or opposition to, any other statement made by Church members. The lack of a specific position is not to be understood to mean that geography is not important. As the author, I accept full responsibility for the representations made herein. It is, however, the express counsel of modern prophets and apostles that members and scholars gain a spiritual witness of the Book of Mormon by reading it and not by evidences of archaeology, anthropology, or geography alone. For believers in the prophetic mission of Joseph Smith, the Book of Mormon is a history book as well as another testament of Jesus Christ. For some nonbelievers, skeptics, and dogmatists, the Book of Mormon is a fantasy tale from the creative mind of Joseph Smith.

Meet the Author

Dr. John L. Lund is an interesting mix of a serious academic with a unique sense of humor. He is often quoted “You either married your greatest test in life or you gave birth to it or you may find your biggest test when you look into the mirror.” Dr. Lund has published in two different fields of research. Improving human relationships is one field and religion is the other. His book on How to Hug a Porcupine: Dealing With Toxic and Difficult to Love Personalities has been widely accepted as a “must read.” It is about those impossible to please people in all of our lives. Bosses, co-workers, employees, and in-laws who become outlaws can make up the world of toxic people. It is especially difficult when the toxic person is a spouse or child. Dr. Lund’s research in interpersonal communication and author identification studies required the equivalent of a doctoral minor in statistics. A significant part of that research involved identifying patterns of speech and differences in how men and women communicate. In 1972 Brigham Young University awarded him the degree of Doctor of Education.
Dr. Lund’s recent book on religion is titled Joseph Smith and the Geography of the Book of Mormon (2012). It is a companion book to the Mesoamerica and the Book of Mormon: Is This The Place? (2007) Drawing upon his expertise in author identification, Dr. Lund researched editorials ascribed to Joseph Smith in an early LDS Church newspaper called the Times and Seasons. A Comprehensive Author Identification Study revealed that Joseph Smith did indeed author the editorials which identified Guatemala as the Book of Mormon land of Zarahemla and the Isthmus of Tehuantepec as the “small or narrow” neck of land spoken of in the Book of Mormon.
Dr. Lund’s work has taken him on a forty year journey where he has taught as adjunct faculty at major universities throughout Washington, Idaho, California and Utah. Dr. Lund has lectured in twenty-seven foreign countries in both fields of interpersonal communication and on world religions.
