"In Search of Something Better"

"The Book of Mormon: 'Our Story'" is another fantastic insight about the Book of Mormon over at Jeff Lindsay's blog.  In it he describes how he was in a missionary discussion and one of the missionaries said that the Book of Mormon is 'our story' because just as Lehi and his family migrated from Jerusalem to the New World, these missionaries and those who they were talking to had migrated from China, Taiwan, the Marshall Islands and Mexico to the Promised Land.

Just as Lehi, King Mosiah, Zeniff , Limhi and Alma, the Anti-Nephi-Lehis, the Mulekites and the Jaredites migrated to a better place, so too are we trying to get to a better place .... from this mortal life to Eternal Life.
