This two-part series presents evidences of the Book of Mormon, including: the Book of Mormon omits the letters q, x, or w from proper names, does not use contractions, indicative of a Hebrew language; omits from the book of Ether references to the priesthood, the law of Moses, stories of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, and other references that are Israelite, except for commentary inserted by Moroni. Brookbank also argues that Joseph Smith did not use the published writings of Del Rio, who visited ruins in America in 1767, as he translated the Book of Mormon. The first part begins the series.
