    1. This set is page after page of the same-old stuff. The authors are very adept at saying the same thing in different words, and if they didn't this set would be half the size it is. If you want trite fluff, devotional musings or the like, this is for you, but there really is much better available. The authors offer nothing new to the study of the Book of Mormon. The most valuable aspect of this set are the occasional authoritative quotes the authors use from modern prophets and apostles, but if t [...]


    2. I decided to read this book along side of the Book of Mormon chapter by chapter, verse by verse. I am learning more about the Book or Mormon as I read this. Having light bulb moments as I journey through. I'm glad I decided to do this.


    3. This book provided some nice insights to my scripture study. I loved the format of reading a few verses and then the commentary on them. I was surprised that there were a few points I didn't agree with, but overall, this book was chock full of sound doctrine. The commentary mostly paraphrased what was already being said, but I liked how reading the commentary made me slow down and think about gospel doctrines.Why the three stars? The Isaiah chapters were sadly neglected. After reading a few page [...]


    4. This was interesting and I learned some cool things that made the scriptures more interesting for me. So yes, I really did like it, but it took me so long to read just 1&2 Nephi that I find myself loosing interest in reading the rest. The thing is, when you read these, it's an intellectual, rather than a spiritual experience. So I would recommend this on top of your regular scripture reading, not to replace it (like I did).


    5. As I read the Book of Mormon this year in Gospel Doctrine class I tried to stay up with the Commentary as well. I had taken a class from Robert Millet in college and had crossed paths with him and also Joseph McConkie many times in my life, as I grew-up so close to both of them, so I was excited to be taught from them in these books on the Book of Mormon. Some things were very insightful and others were just a reinforcement of things I already knew. Excellent book!


    6. I'm almost done with volume four, and can't recommend this highly enough. No wacky speculation about the location of Zarahemla or what Nephi's sisters' names were, just scripture, general authority quotes, and genuine doctrinal commentary from smart people. Made going through the Book of Mormon for the zillionth time interesting, engaging and inspiring.


    7. I learned so much from reading this volume. I have read the second volume with the same experience as the first--learned, learned, learned. I have started the third volume but haven't gotten very far. I took a break to study some other things for a few months. I would recommend these book to anyone wanting to deepen their knowledge of the happenings in the Book of Mormon.


    8. These books are awesome for scripture study! I have only finished the first one & it took me some time to get through simply because there was so much cross referencing but it made scripture study awesome!!! I really loved this first one! I'm pausing for a time to read the Gospels before Easter, and then I will resume with the second book in the series.


    9. I'm trying to read these books along with the Sunday School lesson assignments. It's amazing how much there is to learn. It's a new experience every time through this book(BOM). There's no arguing McConkie and Millet know their stuff. There are four volumes total. I'm struggling to keep up, but don't want to skip anything.


    10. I guess I wasn't quite sure what to expect starting this, but frequently I felt like the commentary consisted of paraphrasing. Having said that their paraphrasing was well written and they stayed right in topic. I was hoping to get a bit more out of the Isaiah chapters. My thoughts were maybe a but negative, but its still on the Book of Mormon and for that reason alone, it's a good read.


    11. This is so helpful in gospel study.holars, who have made ancient scripture their daily work, add to my knowledge base in a wonderful way. Though written by two authors, Millet and McConkie with different writing styles, it is still easy to comprehend and apply to personal study.


    12. This entire series of commentaries (4 books) are excellent helps in understanding the Book of Mormon and for teaching it in class.


    13. Currently studying with this aid. It has been fantastic thus far. It adds doctrinal depth to my BoM study.




    14. I agree with most if the reviews - it is good but mostly just paraphrasing - the value isn't the commentary but the format which makes you slow down and really read the text.


    15. This was a nice supplement to the Book of Mormon. I am continuing on with Vol. of the series. It gives insights on some things that I hadn't known or thought about.


    16. I have read several study supplements to the BOM. This commentary is unique. I felt like there was less repetition then you find in most books like this.


    17. This is a four volume set. It is useful for commentary purposes. Clearly they were places where they failed to be "politically incorrect".




    18. I am currently studying 1st and 2nd Nephi with Caleb and we have found that this book gives great incite. We really like it so far.



    19. the Book of Mormon always gets a 5 rating with me. I did really like the format and commentary of this book


    20. This is a nice companion to the study of the Book of Mormon. It is filled with great insights from the authors who quote extensively the words of the living prophets.



    21. I love anything done by these authors. They are very thought provoking and provide a lot of background that is fascinating.
