Moroni's America

The North American Setting for the Book of Mormon

Authored by Jonathan Neville

383 pages 6x9 Softcover Book

"Where did the Book of Mormon take place?"

Millions of people have asked that question, both believers and nonbelievers.

Just in time for the 2016 Gospel Doctrine course of study—the Book of Mormon—comes Moroni's America, the book that offers a new answer to the universal question. The Book of Mormon took place right here in America—not the Americas—the United States of America.

The answer surprises many people, it is almost too self-evident—yet it fits the scriptures, the geology, the geography, the time frames and the archaeology. Even better, it is 100% consistent with everything Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery said on the topic.

Moroni's America goes through the Book of Mormon, chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse, to explain and illustrate the passages that describe geography. The book answers questions such as Where is Zarahemla? Where did Lehi land? Where is Cumorah?

Moroni's America arrives in a day when there are dozens of theories about Book of Mormon geography, all unsatisfactory for one reason or another. Theories range from Chile to Canada and everywhere in between. (Some have even claimed that the setting is in Malaysia or Eritrea or nowhere at all.) Most readers are familiar with the theory of a Mesoamerican setting, but that concept was based on a mistake in Church history (see The Lost City of Zarahemla). Worse, the Mesoamerican setting requires that the Hill Cumorah—where the Nephites and the Jaredites fought to their destruction—be in Mesoamerica, not New York. Yet Oliver Cowdery said the New York setting was a fact (see Letter VII: Oliver Cowdery's Message to the World about the Hill Cumorah), and Joseph Smith endorsed Oliver's claim. Joseph also called Ohio, Indiana and Illinois the plains of the Nephites.

It's time for the Mesoamerican theory to be discarded.

The Book of Mormon belongs where it actually took place—in Moroni's America.

Back Cover Text

A.D. 421
A faithful son completes his father's mission.
"Behold I, Moroni, do finish the record of my father, Mormon. Behold, I have but few things to write, which things I have been commanded by my father.... After the great and tremendous battle at Cumorah...my father also was killed...and I even remain alone to write the sad tale of the destruction of my people."

From "this north country," Moroni warns his readers—the future occupants of his homeland, the promised land, the place of the New Jerusalem—against repeating the mistakes of the Nephites and the Jaredites before them.

A.D. 1827
The record is revealed and translated.
Moroni's plates rest in the ground for 1400 years until, as a resurrected being who holds the keys to the record (D&C:27:5), Moroni returns and entrusts the translation to Joseph Smith. The sacred record is published in 1830. Millions of copies are published around the world. But confusion arises about the location of Moroni's homeland.

A.D. 2016
The North American setting, clear at last.
After decades of confusion and debate about where the events of Mormon and Moroni described took place, new information and insights support what Joseph said all along: the Book of Mormon took place in North America.

This book offers faith-promoting answers to the question every reader has asked: "Where did all this happen?"
