The Book of Mormon was intended to be a spiritual work—to give readers a testimony of Jesus Christ—not a people’s history and geography. However, for many scholars who believe in the book’s literal truth, there is a natural curiosity to discover where the events in the book took place. Many believe that the historical and geographic context of the Book of Mormon can help readers better understand the spiritual message, as it does with the New Testament.
