I chose it for the cover of Infinite Goodness for several reasons. I love the photo, obviously. It's beautifully composed with striking colors.
There is no easy way to explain how profound and useful it is to see the connections between Joseph Smith and his Elias, Jonathan Edwards. I thought this photo was ideal as a metaphor.
Jonathan Edwards described heaven as a place where we will "swim in an ocean of love."
The image also represents God's "infinite goodness," a non-biblical Book of Mormon term that Jonathan Edwards used. The ocean's horizon is a common metaphor for infinity.
The book is a mere summary of the connections between Joseph Smith and Jonathan Edwards. I have lots more material, and more comes out almost daily. The connections to Edwards add richness and depth to the text of the Book of Mormon. We get a few glimpses, like the well is a sample of the entire ocean.
The well itself is an awesome metaphor for lots of things. It fills and drains, as you can see in this video I took.
