“Benjamin Lived Three Years and He Died”

Brant Gardner

This short sentence is all we have for the end of one of the greatest figures of the Book of Mormon, a man who took a two separate nations in the midst of external and internal turmoil, and fashioned a new people for God of them. At least in his last years he was able to enjoy the peace that he had worked so hard to achieve (see verse 7 where there is continual peace for three years - the length of time that Benjamin lived).
