My flight had landed to let passengers off, but I stayed seated to continue on to the next stop. I put my copy of the Book of Mormon on the seat next to me as I fumbled through my carry-on bag.
A man waiting to de-board said to his buddy, “I read that Mormon book, but it didn’t have a very good plot.”
The Book of Mormon has a plot? I wondered. If it did, it would be-- God leads a group of chosen people away from persecution to a land of promise and tells them that if they keep His commandments, they will prosper. The people struggle to keep faithful to the Lord. Great prophets record their progress, but in the end, they are overtaken by conquerors.
I recently finished the Old Testament and was surprised that the theme/plot is identical to the Book of Mormon (re-read above statement.) Two books, same theme. Will the record of the lost ten tribes also have the same "plot"?After all is said and done, I’m hoping for the happy ending.
