Abstract

This article is the fifth of a series of articles that will provide readers and students of Book of Mormon with specific identifiable 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. 5 and will focus on the relationships among the cities of Nephi, Shilom, Shemlon, the hill north of Shilom, the narrow strip of wilderness, and the Waters of Mormon. 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.
