There are many answers, among which are these: To understand better the events in the Book of Mormon, to develop a perspective against which to understand its teachings and messages, to enjoy the interesting lives of a remarkable people, and to aid in assaying the historicity of the book, ' writes John W. Welch at the beginning of Warfare in the Book of Mormon even though more than one-third of the Book of Mormon concerns war, relatively little has appeared on the topic. Much of what has been published, too, deals with why the Book of Mormon contains so much warfare rather than what the book says about the subject. Warfare in the Book of Mormon actually studies the battles, strategies, weapons, leaders, and values of war in that volume. Based on papers presented at the Symposium on Warfare in the Book of Mormon held at Brigham Young University 24-25 March 1989, this collection of scholarly papers is the first in-depth study of military matters in the Book of Mormon. In the book, John W. Welch identifies over fifteen different wars in the Book of Mormon and examines the relationship between Nephite and Near Eastern law and war. ; F. A. R. M. S.
