Rich -- yes -- George Potter has done some very valuable research on the Book of Mormon and is responsible (with Richard Wellington) for finding the most probable location for the Valley of Lemuel. (And -- like you -- I am familiar with all of the films George's Nephi Project has released as I have multiple -- well used -- copies of each as well as many copies of his book, Lehi in the Wilderness, which I have shared over the years with others.) Regardless, the information in this video is amazing, and adds to all that George has done in the past. Having been to Oman and Israel with Warren Aston and the Proctors in 2008 and then, again, to Oman, with an exploratory expedition, led by Warren and his son, Chad, in 2011, I have a first hand understanding of much of the information covered in this video. George and Warren and all other researchers who have studied the Book of Mormon in the past, while trying to place the happenings in First Nephi, particularly, in a physical location, have done an invaluable service for the rest of us. We can thank them both for that service, view their films and books, and then filter their views through our own spiritual lenses. I have done that, and I know for myself, spiritually, where Bountiful is. Hopefully, others, who are able to physically visit Israel and Oman will have that same wonderful, spiritual experience. However, for those unable to do that, this beautiful, professional quality, video will help them better appreciate what Lehi and his family went through during their Old World journey to Bountiful, just as George's videos have done for me in the past.
Fascinating watch.This film shows research and evidence I've never heard about before. Why is this only being released now?
Fascinating! I want to share my copy of the DVD with everyone...well done!
I tried to purchase the dvd on the website, but it uses paypal, and after an hour of trying I could not get the paypal section to work or take my credit card. Maybe you should try using Amazon, which is a lot easier. I would have liked to have purchased it, but just couldn't.
Website worked fine for me. Found this online review which had some more detail: https://bookofmormonresources.blogspot.com.au/2015/09/lehi-in-arabia.html
Hi Brett, www.lehiinarabia.com is up and working fine. Please try the link again or use a google search.
Hi Kay, Lehi In Arabia: The Search For Nephi's Bountiful is very different from Journey of Faith. While both films do cover the same portion of the Book of Mormon, Lehi In Arabia provides a detailed examination of the Bountiful candidates as well as documenting the expeditions to these remote locations. Journey of Faith is now over ten years old too, so does not include the significant discoveries regarding the Old World journey over the past decade or so. You will also find the format is very different - less 'talking heads' - on screen interviews, which I have tried to replace with more footage of the actual locations for the audience. Enjoy the film!
How does this differ in content from Journey of Faith, put out by the Maxwell Institute several years ago?

George Potter has does extensive research and produced many outstanding films and books. He lived in the peninsula for many years and he is now doing research in Peru where he thinks Lehi landed.
