A call to pure love marks the culmination of Moroni’s book—and thus of the Book of Mormon, and therefore our brief theological introductions!
Dr. David F. Holland of Harvard Divinity School interprets the book of Moroni as an intentionally organized collection of artifacts that points readers toward the transformative power of divine love. He interprets Moroni’s teachings as a “theology of the Gift”—a doctrinal depiction of a God whose nature is to give. This theology powerfully reminds Latter-day Saints that the ordinances we observe, the community we serve, and the talents we develop are all gifts designed to draw us toward the culminating bestowal of Christlike love. Ultimately, this theology rests upon the truth that Jesus Christ is the Gift from which all other gifts flow.
