As we say goodbye to old Nauvoo, our thoughts will turn to Joseph’s life – and death – as we visit CARTHAGE JAIL. Here we will discuss the life of the founding prophet of this dispensation. Next we will explore the hidden trail to ZELPH’S MOUND where Joseph received a vision. While on the mound, Joseph was shown an ancient Book of Mormon warrior, who was killed and buried there following one of the final battles between the Nephites and Lamanites. We travel next to President Abraham Lincoln’s hometown of SPRINGFIELD, Illinois – finishing our day in CHAMPAIGNE.
This morning we will drive to the crest of the one and only HILL CUMORAH. This historic hill overlooks the final resting places of two entire civilizations that once inhabited this land and whose history is found in the Book of Mormon. From this hill wrote the prophet Moroni of the final destruction of his people. In addition, he deposited their sacred history in a stone box atop this very hill. This morning we will reflect upon this monumental history, its implications, its importance and its relevance in our lives. After some time in the visitor’s center there you will be transported to the ROCHESTER AIRPORT for your flight home. We trust you will consider the profound impact the Book of Mormon Chronology tour can have upon your testimony of the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith, and the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

His book titled, “Exploring the Book of Mormon in America’s Heartland” is the #1 LDS Book about Book of Mormon geography with over 40,000 copies printed. He began guiding the Book of Mormon Chronology Tour in 2018.
Rod has also written a book titled “Prophecies and Promises; The Book of Mormon and the USA.” This book outlines the 36 Prophecies and Promises that clearly identify
the United States as the location of the ‘Promised Land’ of the Latter-days. It has been called a “stunning” new insight on geography research and provides historical evidence that documents containing Joseph Smith’s words, writings, and actions were consistent with the prophecies & promises of the Book of Mormon. He also served for seven years as the senior scientific researcher on the book titled, “Universal Model” by Dean Sessions, a natural sciences textbook. The first volume of over
800 pages was just printed in 2017 and volume two printed in 2018, with volume three to follow. It’s over 2,500 pages of “New Millennial Science.”
He began his study of issues surrounding the controversy over DNA and the Book of Mormon in 2003 which led to a study of the origins of proposed geographical settings of the Book of Mormon. In addition, he has spent years of intensive study of the Book of Mormon itself and the historical background and documents associated with it. He is passionate about sharing his research of the Book of Mormon Chronology with others.
