Overview

The first book in the Book of Mormon Commentary is titled "I Nephi Wrote This Record". This volume is 765 pages and covers First and Second Nephi. Within the pages are the actual Book of Mormon verses, so it is not necessary to switch back and forth between books in order to cross reference the commentary with the Book of Mormon. It is a thorough account and commentary of the Lehi, Nephi and their families and their travels. More importantly, First and Second Nephi present a brief account of Nephi's ministry written for the purpose of persuading men to come to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Jesus Christ) and be saved. These two books were written in first person and are not an abridgement. They contain the things pleasing to God and not to the world.
