A Great quote by Dr. Erickson "When research starts on any given name in the Book of Mormon there is no telling where it will lead and just how much is imbedded in the names. Some are absolutely unique in the Book of Mormon, and to find them on clay tablets in Mesopotamia just blows the mind, but does wonders for the spirit! There is no way that these names and all the others could have been conjured up in less than thethree months the Book of Mormon was composed and have the most intimate details substantiated by discoveries of little clay tablets and other inscriptions throughout Turkey, Mesopotamia, Palestine, Egypt and other Middle and Near Eastern countries."
