John W. Welch, Provo, Utah: Briham Young University, 2008, 6.25" x 9.25" Hardcover, 522pgs.
The Legal Cases in the Book of Mormon begins with a discussion of important background information, including legal practices in the ancient Near East, the ideal of righteous judgment, and the legal cases recorded in the Bible. Welch then devotes a chapter to each of the legal cases in the Book of Mormon-from the formative cases of Sherem and Abinadi to the landmark trials of nehor and Korihor, the wrenching prosecution of Alma and Amulek, and the politicized proceedings of Paanchi and Seantum. Because the Nephites strictly observed the law of Moses until the coming of Christ, this book examines the laws, arguments verdicts and punishments of these cases in the light of biblical law.
