What Others Are Saying

Marcel Kahne, Belgium

Retired Church Translator

“I want to add that I am deeply impressed not only by the fantastic, painstaking job you and Richard did in Arabia locating all the places Lehi’s company most likely passed through, but also by the thoroughness and scope of your research of the existing literature – especially in your chapter on shipbuilding. The book makes Lehi and his family come to life. It raises them from the level of a two-dimensional characters of a storybook to that of a three-dimensional real-life people.  Like most Latter-day Saints I suppose, I have read about Nephi’s building of a ship without ever realizing the implications. I think thoughtful Latter-day Saints will be thankful for the contribution you have made.  Lehi In The Wilderness deserves a place next to Hugh Nibley’s “Lehi in the Desert”.

Vicki Lynn Rasmussen

Author of "Head Start with the Book of Mormon"

Tracing the actual trail of Lehi using The Book of Mormon was a novel concept to me.  What a wonderful blessing to all that these two good brethren, Potter and Wellington, pursued their vocations in these formidable lands and were then guided in this great endeavor. As I began reading I was quickly drawn in and amazed by their success at such a difficult task.  Their experiences, insights, and findings, were delightful, inspiring, and faith promoting.  I predict this to be the conclusion of any reader who desires to share their journey.

 Ten More Amazing Discoveries

George Potter continues to wander the sands of the Middle East because, in his words, "I must." The latest result, "Ten More Amazing Discoveries," makes us grateful that he does. Drawing upon years of research, study, and travel, he offers geographical support for Joseph Smith's assertion that the ancient Garden of Eden was located in the New World, not in the Old World. He offers a new, exciting theory on the landing site of Noah's Ark. He shows how Bible scholarship supports the authorship of the Book of Mormon. And he takes us in search of the "real" Mount Sinai and the trail of the Exodus. "Are these amazing discoveries?" asks the author. "To me they are pearls of truth that bring to life the sacred scriptures and confirm our faith." In "Ten More Amazing Discoveries," George Potter takes us on a journey that, in the end, strengthens our testimonies with new insights into the Bible, the authenticity of the Book of Mormon, and the dealings of God with his children, both ancient and modern. 168 pages, 6x9", Paperback, LDS Non-Fiction
