Mormon's Map, by John L. Sorenson. Based on geographical information and related clues drawn exclusively from the Book of Mormon, this book offers a scripturally consistent map of Book of Mormon lands. The author's aim is not to correlate that map with any known geographical area, but rather to offer a useful tool for testing the validity of theories on Book of Mormon geography. The book features a very readable question-and-answer format and contains more than a dozen hypothetical maps. Available early in 2000.
Abraham in Egypt, by Hugh W. Nibley, 2nd edition, edited by Gary P. Gillum.

Nibley examines discoveries that have shed light on Abraham and his times and that help confirm the authenticity of the Book of Abraham. Available in spring 2000.
