Church leaders have testified that the Book of Mormon was written for our day, and many of the themes and events it describes directly correlate to issues that the Saints face today as the Second Coming of Christ approaches. This book takes a detailed look at the parallels between the years leading up to Christ’s first appearance to the Nephites and Lamanites and the conditions of our own day, including themes such as
Contentions, dissensions, and internal strife increasing among the people
Disparity in wealth and riches leading to class distinctions
The just laws of the land being altered by those seeking power
Latter-day Gadianton robbers increasing their influence over society
The people growing in iniquity, rebellion, hardened hearts, and unbelief
