“Alma Did Walk in the Ways of the Lord”

Brant Gardner

The next major book in the Book of Mormon is the book of Alma. Mormon is preparing us for that development by using Alma2 as one of the terminal points of the Mosiah1 dynasty. Mormon therefore expresses his approval of Alma2—a good man (“walk[s] in the ways of the Lord”) who made righteous judgments.
