Synopsis

Why are there so many wars in the Book of Mormon? Could it be that a book written "for our day" would have to prepare us to survive in a time of "wars and rumors of war," a time when Satan is at war with everything that is good?

In this talk John Bytheway shows that what we often call the "war chapters" in the Book of Mormon are rich in gospel wisdom and spiritual insight. The pattern is clear: When the children of Lehi are successful, it's because they make covenants first and swords later. They pray mightily for help from God; then they go to work and fortify their cities. They fail only when they allow themselves to be enticed, decoyed, and distracted from what they should have been doing.

Brother Bytheway shows that the stratagems of warfare are frighteningly similar to the stratagems Satan uses to ensnare God's children today. Spirited, lively, and insightful, this talk on CD illuminates a large section of the Book of Mormon that is sometimes overlooked.
