In 1998 John Sorenson's book, Images of Ancient America : Visualizing the Book of Mormon was published by FARMS. This book, now out of print, provides a beautifully illustrated and systematic treatment of ancient life in Central America (Mesoamerica) and likely connections to the Book of Mormon.
On January 14, 1999, Hugh Nibley wrote a brief note about this book which was sent to John Sorenson, a hard copy of which I have in my files. "This is the best book I have ever seen on the Book of Mormon," wrote Nibley. "John Sorenson's book `Images of America' must remain the indispensable handbook for students of the Book of Mormon. The only book of its kind - enlightening and convincing. Who else will ever bring such diligence, knowledge and honesty to the task?
