Conversion of Alma the Younger
“… behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto them; and he descended as it were in a cloud; and he spake as it were with a voice of thunder, which caused the earth to shake upon which they stood; And so great was their astonishment, that they fell to the earth, and understood not the words which he spake unto them.” Mosiah 27:11-12
The message from the account of Alma the Younger and the Sons of Helaman is one of many about redemption found in The Book of Mormon. Unrighteous in their doings and preachings, these men from faithful parents are awakened unto their sinful states and become redeemed through the Atonement. These men become some of the Book’s most faithful missionaries of Christ’s Gospel.
