Out Of Jerusalem Vol. 3: Towards the Promised Land by H.B. Moore. Published by Covenant Communications, Inc.
|Retail Price: $19.95|
If you have read my previous reviews of the Out of Jerusalem books, Volume 1 and Volume 2, you will have already concluded that I'm a fan of this series. It's kind of funny really, but each time I read another one, I think that this will be the one that can't live up to my expectations. But Volume 3 did once again live up to my expectations and surpass them. I love this series. It's makes me think of the Book of Mormon in a whole new way and it helps me identify with beloved people and stories that we all know so well.
The author never misses a detail in researching these books. The customs, culture and traditions of Lehi's people and times is painstakingly investigated and it is reflected in this volume, as well as previous ones. I have never understood how Nephi's family could have stood by and watched Laman and Lemuel tie Nephi to the mast of the ship without doing something, but the author portrays a very realistic account of what might have been. It helped me to understand and empathize. I truly hope you'll enjoy Towards the Promised Land as much as I did.
