Why do numerous Indian histories affirm so clearly the the fair god of Mesoamerica descended from heaven and taught them such things as love and virtue, the law of the fast, and a promise someday to return to them? How did the Indian people of Mesoamerica in the 14th century come to believe that their god, Quetzalcoatl, was crucified in A.D. 30 and resurrected three days later. How could Joseph Smith have known in the 1820s that at least three huge volcanoes in Mexico and El Salvador each erupted with gigantic destructive lava and ash that buried several cities at the time of the Savior's crucifixion? Why do the ancient sacred books of Mesoamerica reflect knowledge of the Old Testament? How did the ancient people of Mesoamerica as early as the third century B.C. have a very similar Tree of Life as found in the Old World? The answers to these questions, and many more, are explained in the pages of this book. The evidence is conclusive, even overwhelming - connecting the Book of Mormon to recent scientific discoveries in Mesoamerica.
