I found, and still find that Sorenson's book is still worth reading and yes I think you should try it again. The best aspect of the book or perhaps 'set of themes' is that he really does try to read exactly what is IN the Book of Mormon text and think of what that would mean in geographical terms. You do get the clear picture for example that all of the warfare was done on foot with infantry strategy and tactics.

I don't think you have to take his particular "solution" to his "abstract" definition of the geographical features of the Book of Mormon. I find it less than convincing but it is a good starting point.

What I think it clearly does is make a limited geography by far the best hypothesis to work on and test.

Other names I see are:

Limited geography theory
Limited geography model
Limited Mesoamerican geography
Limited Mesoamerican model
