Lehi in the Desert; The World of the Jaredites; There Were Jaredites
Gifted Latter-day Saint scholar Hugh Nibley may be best known for his pioneering investigations into the ancient Near Eastern backgrounds of Lehi and the Jaredites in the Book of Mormon. Three of those classic studies are combined in this volume.
Dr. Nibley’s vast learning in history, culture, archaeology, languages, and literature enabled him to identify evidences of the ancient Near Eastern cultural world in the Book of Mormon and to flesh out that background in a compelling manner. Much of that evidence is direct and strong, providing a constant stream of rare insights into the lives of Lehi and the Jaredites, as well as clarifying perspectives on the Book of Mormon as an authentic ancient text.
