|Title||Chiasmus in Alma 36|
|Year of Publication||1989|
|Authors||Welch, John W.|
|Keywords||Alma the Younger; Chiasmus; Conversion; Parallelism; Testimony|
John Welch displays the overall chiastic structure of Alma 36, suggests a detailed analysis of the text, traces the strands of repetition that weave paired sections tightly together, assesses the chapter's degree of chiasticity, and compares the words and phrases of Alma 36 with the two other firsthand Book of Mormon accounts of Alma's conversion. He suggests that there are many spiritual and intellectual implications to this study.
