Abstract

This is not an essay in the usual sense. Instead, it is a close reading of Moroni 10, looking verse by verse at what Moroni might be teaching us. The overarching question is, to what does Moroni exhort us as he seals his book and writes his final words? Examining each of Moroni’s eight exhortations, Faulconer shows one way to study scriptures and perhaps to think about them afresh. In addition to the important admonition to pray about the truth of the Book of Mormon, he sees in this chapter a message of God’s mercy and of our need for charity.
