Overview

The spiritual text that forms the basis of Mormonism-in the last edition edited by its founder, Joseph Smith, Jr.

THE BOOK OF MORMON is one of the most influential? as well as controversial-religious documents in American history, and is regarded as sacred scripture by followers around the world, including members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the fourth-largest religious body in the United States. According to Mormon belief, The Book of Mormon was inscribed on golden plates by ancient prophets. I t contains stories of ancient peoples migrating from the Near East to the Americas, and also explains that Jesus Christ appeared to the New World after his resurrection. The golden plates were discovered in upstate New York and translated by Joseph Smith, Jr., under the guidance of an angel, Moroni. From this divine revelation, Smith founded the Mormon sect, which is now comprised of more than 12.5 million members worldwide.

    Wow

    Ok, well. I myself am not of the Mormon religion, but a girl I am courting is. And I did go out to a school in Utah which was run by Mormons. Let me start off by saying, they do get a bad rap.

    The generalization of Mormon being a cult is repulsive to me. And I was ignorent to the religion myself at one point, but being the type of person who tries to better understand things he does not understand, and not continuing my ignorence, I picked up a copy of The Book Of Mormon.

    Although I have not read through all of it, what I did read was enough to allow me more incite into the religion. It is a very true religion. Based of the same basic principals as any religion. Sure, there are some differences, but then again, so does every other religion.

    Being a child brought up in a house with no strong hold on any religion, I have always been the type to look for enlightenment in any place that I can find it, and thus far, I have found alot within the Mormon religion.

    So, instead of bashing something because you simply don't know anything about it, or because you don't like something that is different than what you expect, stop, go to your library, and read the book. Understanding the religion is alot more productive than going against what is different.

    great book, terrible nook interface

    Let me start off by saying that I LOVE THE BOOK OF MORMON! My rating is not about the book! My rating is about the navigation in the Nook. For this edition of the Book of Mormon, there are no chapters under "go to chapter". Therefore, the only way to move around in the book is to page forward page by page. This is fine if you are planning to read it from front to back. Unfortunately, I want to be able to skip around in this book, so I will be looking for a different copy. There are many editions available, I'm hoping to find the right one, but don't waste your money on this one!

    Racist. Misogynistic. Disgusting. Brainwashing at its worst.

    Growing up my family was Mormon. Suddenly when I was 10-yo Grandpa announced we were never going back. I don't know what happened, but I am eternally grateful, or too might have been sucked into this disgusting cult.

    DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. DO NOT ACCEPT A FREE COPY. DO NOT GIVE LDS HOUNDS YOUR NAME OR YOUR ADDRESS.

    This book is nothing but a sick fantasy from a perverted, sex-obsessed con-man. This nonsense has no place in modern society.

    Digital Quality is Poor

    This is a digital download, not a scan. There are too many typo's. It is not accurate at all and isn't correct. It may be free, but not at all worth your time to download.

    The text was jumbled.

    This is a copy from Cornell University's library that was converted to ebook, but in the conversion much of the text is jumbled and illegible. You'd be better off trying a different version.

    Don't Buy

    This version has misspelled words, and strange notes at the end of chapters. Do yourself a favor and download a version from a reputable LDS site.

    As a member of the RLDS restoration branch and engaged to a wome

    As a member of the RLDS restoration branch and engaged to a women of the LDS church i have had the opportunity to view both versions of the Book Of Mormon. I have found that the two versions differ by the organization of the passages and verses of the two. People only Know of the LDS and dismiss the RLDS church which in a hearing over the possession of the Kirtland temple, the courts of the time in Lake county, Ohio rule that the RLDS church had remained faithful to the original doctrine that Joseph Smith Jr. and founded in Mormonism, and being that the RLDS church was the rightful successors of Joseph Smith Jr. and rightful holders of the Kirtland temple in Kirtland, Ohio. I myself believe that the Book of Mormon 1830 edition is the second witness of Jesus Christ. and have seen the archeological evidence of its truth. I'm not saying the LDS church is totally wrong but misguided in some aspects of the original doctrine. We both came from the same background but after the assassination of Joseph Smith Jr. the Church split with different views on the doctrine. But never the less I recommend the Book of Mormon 1830 addition to anyone that has the desire to learn the truth of the second witness of Christ.

    I loved this book

    This book is amazing sure it has typos,and some verse numbers would be nice but over all the message can still be found. I love reading this book over and over again. I am mormon and i can assure anyone that this book is true. And the mormon religion does not brainwash people. Try reading from a quad if you want.but the book of mormon and the bible (king james version) are the words of god.

    Overall was good, words were full of typos (includes a bit of a rant)

    I don't mean what words they use, but how many typos there are. I own a hard copy of The Book of Mormon, and I can assure you that it does not really have any typos at all. Also, as for weather the Mormons are a cult, you have another thing coming. Have you ever heard of a cult that belives in Christ, because I sure haven't. I am 14 and still know more than what half these people are saying. Sorry, about the rant, but I needed to get that off my chest. My rate would have been higher had not all the typos been in there.
