I am a visual and hands-on learner. I can learn a subject much more quickly if I have something to look at (e.g., objects, diagrams, and maps), touch them with my hands (hands-on), and read about the subject. I am usually a good listener, too. So, verbal instruction also helps. I do much better if I have multiple types of input.
That said, I have created an aid that helps me as I read the Book of Mormon. And, I want to share this tool with anyone who may be interested. It is NOT meant to represent a precise or realistic map of Book of Mormon lands. It is just a simple diagram attempting to depicting key groups (people), relative places, and events in the early history recorded in the Book of Mormon. It represent events that occurred before the missionary journeys of Alma (the Younger), Amulek, and the sons of Mosiah. I have NOT attempted to diagram the “war chapters,” nor have I attempted to diagram the events surrounding the visitation of the Lord Jesus Christ among the Nephite people. Again, this is just a simple diagram, and it is not to scale. It only shows the relative associations of the key groups, places, and events, as mentioned. I hope it will be of some use to others.
Note: You are also welcome to open and print the “Suggested Map Timeline.” It’s a helpful tool as you read along in the Book of Mormon and follow the diagram. Just click on the link below the diagram and print it off for quick reference. Also note, this site is protected by both Norton Security and Web Hosting Security. It is safe and secure!
