The second book in the series entitled These Records are True is 532 pages ad covers the books of Jacob, Enos, Jarom, Omni, Words of Mormon and Mosiah.

King Benjamin bore testimony to his sons that the plates of brass, that had been brought from Jerusalem and preserved by the hand of God, were true. He also bore testimony of the plates of Nephi, which contains the records of their fathers since they left Jerusalem were true. This volume of the Book of Mormon Commentary Series covers the time period from the death of Nephi (544 BC) to the death of Alma the elder and King Mosiah. (91 BC) – a period of over 450 years. It covers the words of the prophets from Jacob, brother of Nephi, through Alma, who organized the church at the Waters of Mormon. The first part of this work is taken from the small plates of Nephi, Jacob through Omni, that Mormon found as he began the abridgement of the large plates of Nephi. As he joined his work with the small plates, he wrote a brief historical summary to bridge the gap between the two records: the words of Mormon. Thus the title of this volume which includes a combination of these accounts, was adopted from King Benjamin, "These Records Are True".
