|Alma the Younger; Conversion
Alma’s conversion is documented in three places in the Book of Mormon. This chart compares the rhetorical situation of each of these accounts and shows how the context of the situation may have in part determined the way Alma expressed his conversion story each time he told it. Though each account differs from the others, all were appropriate for the contexts in which they were given.
