The New Testament of Ancient America

This is a 72-page booklet containing all of Third Nephi with some short introductory information, testimonies of the three and eight witnesses to the Book of Mormon, and the promise in Moroni 10.

This is designed as a missionary tool to introduce nonmembers to the Book of Mormon. It can be used by individuals or missionary groups. The only organizational name shown in the booklet is Zion Bound, Inc., the publisher of the pocket-size Book of Mormon. The text of Third Nephi is printed directly from that pocket-size book, and it is from the 1908 edition of the RLDS Book of Mormon.

This is a new resource to help believers share the truths of the Book of Mormon and the witness of Christ in America. Everyone who wants to share should carry a few of these booklets.

72 Pages  $1.00 each or  $10.00 for a packet of 11 copies


This sweet romance of Elizabeth Ann Whitmer and Oliver Cowdery had its root and growth in the young Latter Day Saint Church. The story begins in New York State and ends in Missouri.

Seen through the eyes of Elizabeth Ann—between the ages of 14 and 17—the history of the early Restoration Movement is a main focus of the romance. For this reason, excerpts of historical records are included in this booklet to add background information and authenticity for the events portrayed by the author.

May the pages of this romance bring to each reader a deeper understanding and appreciation of those stalwart Saints of yesteryear and engender within us a pronounced commitment to live in the present day and in the future as obedient servants of the Lord.
