In this series, internal evidences of the Book of Mormon’s authenticity are argued using analysis of words and names used in the book that reflect ancient Hebrew customs, and parallels between the Book of Mormon and American Indian languages. The first part covers the language of the Book of Mormon and its names, as well as "in the language of my father," "seer," "the earth," "a narrow pass," "crossing the deep," and "shining stones."
