by Harold I. Velt
The measuring stick for success in the life of individual man was well expressed long ago by William James when he said, "The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it."
Author Harold I. Velt, in clear and straightforward style, examines the testimony of the many, many persons and events contributing to the bringing forth and establishment of the Book of Mormon as an irrefutable record of the history, religious life, and other social experiences of the native American race. He patiently and fairly, yet emphatically, reviews the stand of those opposing the validity of the work, giving such consideration in light of factual data which is available for examination.
The author also very impressively utilizes his vast storehouse of knowledge in the fields of history and religion in dealing with the actual content of the Book of Mormon—its purpose and teaching in relation to the plan of salvation as propounded by Jesus.
