"And I promise thee that if ye ask if this book be not true, and roll a pair of dice with a sincere heart, and desire exceedingly for the book to be true, yea, the dice shall reveal the truthfulness of this book unto thee."
  - Melph 5:4

"His name was Zelph. He was a warrior and chieftain under the great prophet Onandagus, who was known from the Hill Cumorah, or eastern sea to the Rocky mountains."

 - Joseph Smith, History of the Church, 2:79-80; June 3, 1834



"We learn that Zelph was slain during one of these battles during the great last struggle between the Nephites and Lamanites and was buried near the Illinois River."

- Joseph Fielding Smith



"While on our way we felt anxious to know who the person was who had been killed by that arrow. It was made known to Joseph that he had been an officer who fell in battle, in the last destruction among the Lamanites, and his name was Zelph.

- Heber C. Kimball


Who Was Zelph?

Perhaps the greatest person in American History was Zelph, the great white Lamanite warrior, who was slain during the last great struggle between the Nephites and Lamanites. His remains were discovered by Joseph Smith and Company in 1834, but not much was known about him. He has remained a cult hero among faithful latter-day saints for nearly 170 years. Until now, Zelph's memory has been kept alive through fantastic urban legends told around campfires and in early morning seminary. These tales can finally be put to rest, because Zelph can now speak for himself. Zelph fans rejoice, for Zelph's records have been discovered!! We can now read Zelph's own words, written by his own hand, upon plates!!

Zelph the White Lamanite*

The Coming Forth of The Book of Zelph

While pondering certain passages in The History of the Church, Volume 2, Josh Anderson came upon a passage that mentioned a great white Lamanite warrior named Zelph. This seemingly insignificant event would lead him on a journey to Zelph's final resting place. It was there, in a grove of trees, that Josh would come across the greatest archeological find since Joseph Smith purchased Abraham's writings from Michael Chandler. Josh was led to a hand cart overflowing with metal plates, which were the Lamanite records. He translated the abridgment of these plates, given to him by Zelph, into the Book of Zelph. For the entire story of the coming forth of the Book of Zelph, read Josh Anderson's testimony here.

A Timely Discovery

As archeological and DNA evidence appear to disprove the Book of Mormon, the Book of Zelph has come forward as a second witness to The Book of Mormon. The Book of Zelph fills in the scientific gaps of the Book of Mormon and explains the DNA controversy.


A Message from the Translator of This Work

"Thank you for taking the time to visit this site. Now that you have learned a little bit about Zelph, don't you want to learn more? I encourage you to take the next step and read the Book of Zelph, and then ask yourself if it really is true. If you read it and don't think it is true, re-read it and ask yourself again if you think it is true. If you have some dice, you may want to try Melph's promise, as outlined in the fifth chapter of Melph. In fact, you don't even need to read the book to do Melph's promise. For those who think it is not true, I issue the Book of Zelph Challenge. I promise you that if you do the things I tell you, you will eventually discover for yourself that the Book of Zelph is true. You can also read the inspiring personal testimonies of those who have read the Book of Zelph and know it to be true."
