Abstract

Deals with the question of how to distinguish between the name/titles Father and Son and the word Lord in the Book of Mormon. Notes that sometimes the distinction is blurred, especially when the Son speaks on behalf of the Father in the first person. Discusses the different roles of both members of the Godhead.
