Nephi concentrated on the hopeful future—our day, when his family’s descendants are beginning to flourish—rather than ugly details of intervening history. Nephi’s prophecies focused on people and principles, as he viewed the “sweep of history and God’s plan.” Almost half of Nephi’s discourse about his vision was related to the influence of a book of scripture.
