@Read Pdf ⚣ Out of Jerusalem, Volume 3: Towards the Promised Land Î It Is Time For Lehi S Family To Leave The Place Bountiful For The Promised Land But Nephi S Older Brothers, Laman And Lemuel, Believe They Are Already Living In A Promised Land Why Should They Leave Their Newfound Abundance Challenged With Following Instructions From The Lord While Keeping Peace Within The Family, Nephi Forges Ahead To Build A Ship That Can Cross Oceans But Storms At Sea Are Nothing Compared To The Turbulent Relationship Between Nephi And His Older Brothers From Publisher S Description Although we don t really know what exactly happened in between Nephi and his family building the ship and their journey except for his older brothers tying him up to the mast and the major storm happening for a few days until his brothers loosed him, this was VERY well written and as usual I loved this one I feel like I m a part of the family and traveling with them after knowing these stories since I was a little girl These stories truly come to life for me and now when I read even a portion of the Book of Mormon now I feel I m actually there with these amazing men and the people and can picture what they see now Such a good series and sad it s ending after four books. This is my book and I gave it 5 stars because of a few reasons I know I m not the stellar writer yet.This book wouldn t have existed had I not interviewed Book of Mormon scholars When I found out that it would have taken Nephi 2 3 years to build the ship in Bountiful, and another 9 months to cross the ocean, I knew this would make up a volume on its own.I consider this book as the bridge between scholarly research on the Book of Mormon lands and the average reader Most people don t read works and essays published by FARMS or other publications articles on smelting tools, the Nephite calendar, duties of the nomadic women, habits of camels, etc And I didn t either until I started doing my research.I was able to gain access to the transcripts of the documentary film Journey of Faith FARMS and added them to my research My book had gone to press by the time the film was released So I sat in the audience on the opening night and checked off the research details that I had covered in my book It was important to me to get it right Although the Out of Jerusalem series is fiction, I wanted the events that occurred in my books to be as plausible as possible.So to pick up this book, you ll come away with greater insight of the culture and lives of Lehi and family, combined with some fun entertainment. I enjoy these books I like the characters, the plot moves along, and the information is fascinating so I ve been trying to figure out why I will read some, then put it aside and read something else for a while before I go back to it As I was nearing the end of this book, the reason occurred to me the story is such a downer No matter how many times things work out, you know there is going to be conflict within the family No matter how many times Laman and Lemuel repent, you know they are going to get mad and try to kill Nephi again In spite of the mild depression I feel while reading, I recommend the books They are well researched In this volume, I gained greater insight into trade routes and ship building in this era of history It s also interesting to see all the things women were traditionally expected to do Glad I live now I am really enjoying this series Heather Moore, the author said I consider this book as the bridge between scholarly research on the Book of Mormon lands and the average reader Most people don t read works and essays published by FARMS or other publications articles on smelting tools, the Nephite calendar, duties of the nomadic women, habits of camels, etc And I didn t either until I started doing my research She combines her research with what we know from The Book of Mormon Then she fills in the blanks with a fun story I love learning about the culture and imagining what the women of The Book of Mormon may have been like It makes me think about the scriptures in in new ways.
