Abstract

Rust, in the third annual FARMS Book of Mormon lecture delivered on 27 February 1990, examined literary aspects of the book that develop the primary purposes set out on the title page. He discussed the elements characteristic of an epic that will allow modern-day Lamanites to trust in the Lord’s deliverance and detailed literary (especially poetic) presentations of covenants in the Book of Mormon. Literary elements combine with the influence of the Spirit to testify of the purposes of the Book of Mormon.
