What the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls has done to spark re-examination of basic Christianity, Meldrum's analysis of DNA research promises to do for the re-examination—and probable replacement—of Mesoamerica as the accepted locus of Book of Mormon chronology.
Not since the long-lost Joseph Smith papyri burst upon the scene in 1967 has there been news of this magnitude and import regarding physical corroboration of Latter-day Saint doctrine and scripture.
Praise for the book
Over the past ten years much has been speculated about these questions, especially in light of scientific findings involving human DNA testing. Recent research has been conducted on Native American DNA, studies potentially related to the Book of Mormon that may lend support to its claims. The research herein refutes the claim that DNA analysis proves the Book of Mormon false, on the contrary it explores genetic (DNA) evidence that may actually support the claims of the Book of Mormon.
