This book caused me to consider the Book of Mormon in a new, more analytic way. Until now I had thought of it as a religious text. Now I see that it evidences ties to the Old Testament in much greater depth that I could have imagined. Here are a few notes that give a flavor of the book.

"Indeed, law and religion were much more closely aligned in the ancient world than they are in the modern state. In antiquity, God’s will was seen to reside in the judicial resolution of crucial issues. Thus the legal cases reported in the Book of Mormon, as in the Bible, are not just about crime and punishment in a secular sense. To the men and women who experienced those legal confrontations, those cases are all about the ultimate definitions of righteousness and wickedness, the open differentiation of truth from falsity, and the firm recognition of righteous authority as opposed to unjust imposition. Reading the scriptures in light of ancient laws, principles, practicalities, purposes, and sympathies enriches appreciation for issues and contexts out of which many of the plain messages of the prophetic Book of Mormon arose." (Page xii)

Chapter 5: The Case of Sherem
I had no idea that the accusations and counter accusations fit so neatly into the framework of the law of Moses. Next time that I read the last chapter of Jacob I will see it with different eyes.

Chapter 6: Trial of Abinadi
The first 5 pages of chapter 6 discuss who wrote this account and why. "Significantly, one of the main purposes of the book of Mosiah is to justify this major political change [from kingship to rule by judges]." (Page 142)

Chapter 7: Trial of Nehor
I, along with most people, tend to read the Book of Mormon as a religious book, and not consider the political events that formed the environment those people lived in. Bringing in the political side of their live makes it a lot clearer that they were involved in difficult decisions similar to what we face, and that making the decisions they made was probably just as difficult as it is for us to make good decisions.
