This drawing depicts a dream that Joseph Smith, Sr. reportedly had in 1811, and that Joseph Smith, Jr. almost certainly grew up hearing about. It strongly resembles a prominent portion of the Book of Mormon. Skeptics of the Book of Mormon's historicity see Joseph Smith Sr.'s dream as an element of Joseph Smith's personal environment appearing in the Book of Mormon. Believers generally find ways to avoid that conclusion. For an overview of the issue, click here.
