“The Land of Promise,” New Era, Jan. 1975, 20
If we could see the people and the scenes of the Book of Mormon in living color, Nephites, Lamanites, prophets, and troublemakers alike could take on a reality that often escapes us. These photographs and accompanying scriptures are not meant to suggest any real locations in Book of Mormon geography, but are presented to suggest images that should be helpful in visualizing Book of Mormon scenery more vividly.
So, let these photographs paint the scenery in your mind for the stage on which the drama of the Book of Mormon could have been acted out. Then as you read the scriptural vignettes accompanying the scenes, you’ll begin to see real people move about in the theater of your inner eye.
