Abstract

After relating the history of one civilization, the Book of Mormon provides a brief summary of another civilization. The archaeology of Mesoamerica confirms that rise and fall of two civilizations along similar chronological lines. By twice relating the fall of once righteous people, the Book of Mormon provides an emphatic warning to our own time.
