The second section looks at the Book of Mormon itself, letting it stand on its own, and letting it answer a group of charges made by the prosecution against the work. We find that it is its own best witness; that it will answer the charges in and of itself; that it is consistent with itself; that it does not contradict itself nor the other great book, the "Stick of Judah," the Bible, which was to be its running mate.
The third section looks at the greatest men in the field of science who are not members of the Church. These men are archaeologists, ethnologists, zoologists, and anthropologists who have studied the ancient races of this continent. From their testimonies, we set up the external evidence for the authenticity of the Book of Mormon.
