Book of Mormon studies, Feasting on the Word: The Literary Testimony of the Book of Mormon, Richard Dilworth Rust, Moroni 7, faith, hope, charity


Moroni 7 is one of the most tightly woven and forceful sermons in the Book of Mormon. Recorded by Mormon's son Moroni, this sermon on faith, hope, and charity is particularly poignant because Mormon has been killed by the Lamanites and Moroni is the solitary survivor. We can picture Moroni rereading this sermon in order to strengthen his own faith, hope, and charity-topics he addresses in his concluding words in the Book of Mormon.
