An LDS Guide to Mesoamerica

by Daniel Johnson

$29.99

Quick Overview

Even though this book is for the layperson, they give many bits and pieces of useful information for the traveler to the sites of Mesoamerica. A photo of a gold plate/disc with hieroglyphs from Chichen Itza that they saw in storage at the Peabody Museum at Harvard, is an example of an important artifact that has been overlooked by most scholars. This find is extremely important to Latter-day Saints, since the Book of Mormon was inscribed with writing on golden plates. The three authors of An LDS Guide to Mesoamerica, walk us through the lands of the Book of Mormon. They discuss early Church assumptions as to where the people of the Book of Mormon lived, and then discuss the plausible locale that is theorized by most LDS scholars today. The authors also explain that the major sites that most tourists visit, flourished after the Book of Mormon period. However, they direct the LDS tourist to some of the pre-Columbian sites that did exist during the timeframe of the Book of Mormon, and explain that most were covered by later construction. LDS tourists often go to Mexico and Central America thinking they will see where and how the people of the descendants of Lehi s party lived.
