This book is helpful to make what life was like before Lehi left to the Promised Land I didn t realize how corupted the Elders in the City Council of Jerusalem were It really opens your understanding of Jerusalem back in 601 B.C I loved the Documentation of each Chapter Lots to learn and very detailed I liked and have read all three David G Woolley the Author had gotten sick after Volume Three and he just now announced that Volume Four Day of Remembrance Volume IV will be out September 2008 and Volume Five Compass of God will be out September 2009, I loved being put back in time of the Book of Mormon Lots to Read.Donna
