Wars in the BOM

The Book of Mormon is an abridgment of God’s dealings with the people of Nephi and contains many accounts of warfare. Mormon chose to include various details and stories about the warfare of the Nephites to teach certain spiritual principles for those living in the last days. Each story and detail is included to help illustrate these principles.

What’s the point?

By studying the wars of the BOM, we gain insights into BOM geography, the lives of the BOM people, the culture and civilization of the people in ancient America, and important spiritual lessons.


Here I have an outline and summary of all the wars and battles in the BOM. Each battle and war is given a name, dated, and summarized. With this information, we can better distinguish battles and wars from one another. Studying the wars and battles becomes easier, more organized, and more logical.
