Constructed around a key episode in the Book of Mormon, The Nephiad blends the rigidly-defined structures and grand style of the Renaissance epic poem with modern-day scripture to re-create a genre that is at once uplifting and compelling. Gideon Burton calls it "a unique contribution to Mormon literature." It is one of a handful of attempts at an LDS verse epic in the past century and a half.
