Chiasmus is a form of poetry where ideas are expressed and then repeated in reverse order. Ancient Hebrew poetic writing is filled with chiasmus. For example, the Old Testament has hundreds of chiasms.
A simple example of chiasmus is found in Matthew 23:12:
A Whosoever exalteth himself
B Shall be abased;
B And he that humbleth himself
A Shall be exalted.
Significantly, chiasmus is also frequently found in the Book of Mormon, which also, ultimately, has ancient Hebrew origins. Book of Mormon Chiasmus brings together nearly three hundred extraordinary examples of chiasmus found in this holy scripture.
This book will be a welcome addition to the library of anyone who loves the Book of Mormon and desires a deeper understanding of its connections to the Hebrew world.
