Abstract

This article is the first of a series of articles that will provide readers and students of the Book of Mormon with specific and scripturally supported geographic standards without reference to any real-world geography. The specific standard identified in this article will be referred to hereafter as Geographic Standard No. 1 and will focus on the relationships among Zarahemla, Minon, Gideon, and the river Sidon. Following a discussion of this objective standard, currently proposed models will be compared with this standard, and the areas where this standard has not been followed will be shown and discussed.
