Topics discussed included Women in the Book of Mormon, a comparison of Third Nephi to the Sermon on the Mount, Priesthood Principles and Church Organization in the Book of Mormon, Ancient Near Eastern Background of the Book of Mormon, and Priesthood versus Priestcraft among the Nephites. Many valuable materials were provided.
