Explore the Book of Mormon geography in a relative geography setting. All locations will be given in relation to each other without trying to pin down the actual location. Various theories will be explored. Using the Book of Mormon, the locations of cities, hills, rivers, and major geographical locations will be examined. The location of battles (not for cities), major migrations of peoples, missionary journeys, cities with walls, temples, synagogues, and prisons will be explored. We will be using Scripture Creations Book of Mormon Study map as the basis for the class.
