Book of Mormon: A History of Real People in Real Places

by Terrence J. O'Leary

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
This book is for those who know very little about the Book of Mormon. I hope that this account will sow seeds that might inspire them to take the book seriously. I have included elements of the narrative so that those unfamiliar with the Book of Mormon can better understand the context. It is an attempt to bring life to the events described. This book is also for those who passively dismiss the Book of Mormon as nineteenth Century literature. Some may see it as fiction. Some may see it as inspired but dismiss it as a historic document. As time has passed, although the Book of Mormon has not changed, the evidence supporting it has grown. The focus of the book is based on the sequence of events described in the Book of Mormon. Those events are then correlated with documentable elements of ancient history, archaeology, geography, geology, and oceanography. When combined, one can begin to see the people described in the Book of Mormon as real people in real places.

About the author
I grew up in Davenport, Iowa. I received an A.A. degree with a major in biology from Graceland College (now Graceland University) in Lamoni, Iowa. I received a B.S. in Education and an M.S. with a major in biology from Central Missouri State College (now University of Central Missouri) in Warrensburg, Missouri. I completed undergraduate majors in biology, geology, and psychology/education with minors in general science and mathematics. As this was during the Vietnam Era, I joined the Navy. I received a direct commission to Lieutenant Junior Grade (O-2) in the Medical Service Corps as an aerospace physiologist. After twenty years, I retired as a Commander (O-5). After retiring from the Navy, I was then able to teach in the public school system of Virginia Beach, Virginia. I taught eighth-grade general science for four years before moving to a high school where I taught biology and earth science for sixteen years. I was the science department chair for the last nine years. After retiring again, I have been able to pursue my passion for researching both church history and the Book of Mormon. I have been married for over fifty years to Patricia J. Boorjian. We have two sons. We are currently living in St. Augustine, Florida.
