"Obviously, if one of the models answered all the questions presented by the scriptural text, there would be consensus on where the Book of Mormon history actually occurred." Roger Terry, Senior Associate Editor, BYU Studies. Brother Terry would be correct if Book of Mormon scholars stuck with what the prophets have taught about Cumorah in New York, but they refuse. Here we discuss how to reach consensus that is consistent with the prophets.

2016 year of consensus
With everyone in the Church focusing on the Book of Mormon as the course of study for Gospel Doctrine classes, this is the time for everyone to come together on Book of Mormon historicity issues, including geography.
With the publication this week of Moroni's America, I'm going to comment regularly on ways to reach consensus.
I'm optimistic that this will be a breakthrough year for everyone who loves the Book of Mormon.
