Many theories exist about the location of the Lands of the Book of Mormon.

Cumorah is a drumlin in Manchester, New York, United States, where Joseph Smith said he found a set of golden plates which he translated into English and published as the Book of Mormon

Cumorah is a drumlin in Manchester, New York, United States, where Joseph Smith said he found a set of golden plates which he translated into English and published as the Book of Mormon. In the text of the Book of Mormon, "Cumorah" is a hill located in a land of the same name, which is "a land of many waters, rivers and fountains"

Edwin Goble was co-author of the book This Land: Zarahemla and the Nephite Nation in 2002. Goble later retracted that model, and now believes the Narrow Neck of Land is Tehuantepec, that the Land Southward was in Mesoamerica, and that the Ancient Cumorah is in New York.

The Book of Mormon had blue specks that are still visible today.

Recently, Ed Goble sent a copy of his book, Resurrecting Cumorah, to Doug Christensen and Steve Carr asking us to read it with an open mind to understand his position that the early and major parts of the Book of Mormon took place in Mesoamerica but that Mormon’s trek to the battle.

Recently, Ed Goble sent a copy of his book, Resurrecting Cumorah, to Doug Christensen and Steve Carr asking us to read it with an open mind to understand his position that the early and major parts of the Book of Mormon took place in Mesoamerica but that Mormon’s trek to the battle at the Hill Cumorah took place from Mesoamerica to New. York and that the New York Cumorah is the same one that is mentioned in the Book of Mormon. He also wants (at least to begin with) to utilize only what the text states, in other words, limited to primary sources or material and not testimony, etc. We have done.

This book is, in part, Goble’s journey with Book of Mormon geography. He indicates how, at one time, he believed in the Heartland theory, then became skeptical of certain parts of that theory. Now he promotes the Hemispherical theory. And another: -It will require some inspiration, as well, for this is a subject which has not yet been deciphered.

America’s Witness for Christ. This recording features music from the Hill Cumorah Pageant soundtrack, with performances by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the Salt Lake Children’s Choir, and the Utah Symphony. Seems a little quiet over here.

Edwin Goble was co-author with Wayne N. May of This Land: Zarahemla and the Nephite Nation; however, he substantially modified his ideas in this 2011 (2nd revised edition) book.

He wrote in the Introduction, "The purpose of this book is to promote a Mesoamerican setting of the Book of Mormon as the land of Zarahemla. But I am placing Cumorah in New York still... we have (1) Cumorah in New York, (2) the Northern Nephite domain in the Midwestern US... And then we have (3) the Narrow Neck of Land and Zarahemla in Mesoamerica."

Here are some additional quotations from the book:

"I have made retractions to significant portions of the first 'This Land' book... it now only represents (Wayne May's) points of view... My relationship and partnership with Wayne May ended swiftly after the publication of the first volume... because of my retractions of the controversial artifacts that were contained in the first 'This Land' book... It is enough to say that between 2002 and 2004, I had a dramatic paradigm shift which resulted in this current book." (Pg. 17)
"...it is nothing more than a 'traditional belief' that Lehi landed that far south, and such a definite conclusion is not warranted from the text." (Pg. 34)
"Just because not all of the traditional interpretations hold up to scrutiny, that doesn't automatically mean that the traditional interpretation of the New York Cumorah does not. The traditional interpretation of Cumorah is very reasonable. It has just fallen out of fashion because certain scholars don't believe that way." (Pg. 70-71)
"This verse (Mormon 6:6) doesn't comment on where Moroni buried that other set of plates decades later. It doesn't say that Moroni DID NOT RETURN TO BURY them in the same hill." (Pg. 75)
"There is no positive evidence one way or the other that the Book of Mormon plates were or were not buried in the same Hill Cumorah... the internal geography of Cumorah based on anchors in the text ... is what makes the last battle happen an exceedingly great distance from the Narrow Neck of Land." (Pg. 77)
"In summary, Cumorah was just southward of one of these large bodies of water called the Great Lakes. The large bodies of water were an exceedingly great distance from Zarahemla in a land of many waters, according to the text of the Book of Mormon. It's not a new conclusion, but is the traditional one, and it is rational to believe it." (Pg. 79)
"This shows that the Nephite destruction in the Great Lakes region is perfectly plausible... and shows that these scriptures show that many Nephites occupied the Hopewellian centers... it shows that the traditional interpretations are mostly plausible, but with some tweaks on the details and nuances and assumptions that have traditionally been made." (Pg. 93)
"So, what if... nothing is found at the Hill Cumorah or surrounding areas? At that point, it once again becomes entirely a matter of faith for me... Do I say that the Lord is hiding the evidence? No. I just say, this is the difficulty that exists. Then I just move on. We haven't found the steel swords patterned after Laban's sword in Mesoamerica either. We haven't found the unquestionably unambiguous Nephite evidences of the Book of Mormon in Mesoamerica either." (Pg. 125)
