OVERVIEW:

This important collection brings together two critically important writings by Joseph Smith, The Book of Mormon and his Wentworth Letter. Taken together, these two works represent the foundation of the Latter Day Saints movement and the Mormon church.


EXCERPTS:


"On the evening of the...twenty-first of September [1823]...I betook myself to prayer and supplication to Almighty God....

"While I was thus in the act of calling upon God, I discovered a light appearing in my room, which continued to increase until the room was lighter than at noonday, when immediately a personage appeared at my bedside, standing in the air, for his feet did not touch the floor.

"He had on a loose robe of most exquisite whiteness. It was a whiteness beyond anything earthly I had ever seen; nor do I believe that any earthly thing could be made to appear so exceedingly white and brilliant. His hands were naked, and his arms also, a little above the wrists; so, also, were his feet naked, as were his legs, a little above the ankles. His head and neck were also bare. I could discover that he had no other clothing on but this robe, as it was open, so that I could see into his bosom.

"Not only was his robe exceedingly white, but his whole person was glorious beyond description, and his countenance truly like lightning. The room was exceedingly light, but not so very bright as immediately around his person. When I first looked upon him, I was afraid; but the fear soon left me.

"He called me by name, and said unto me that he was a messenger sent from the presence of God to me, and that his name was Moroni; that God had a work for me to do; and that my name should be had for good and evil among all nations, kindreds, and tongues, or that it should be both good and evil spoken of among all people.

"He said there was a book deposited, written upon gold plates, giving an account of the former inhabitants of this continent, and the source from whence they sprang. He also said that the fulness of the everlasting Gospel was contained in it, as delivered by the Savior to the ancient inhabitants;

"Also, that there were two stones in silver bows—and these stones, fastened to a breastplate, constituted what is called the Urim and Thummim—deposited with the plates; and the possession and use of these stones were what constituted Seers in ancient or former times; and that God had prepared them for the purpose of translating the book…"

I've had nothing but problems with this ebook edition. Navigation is a horror, the book hangs if I try to page back from the Wentworth Letter to the Book of Mormon. And when I tried to read on my iPod using the Nook app, I found that the text would be displayed only in the tiniest (and for me totally unreadable) font.

The Book of Mormon was not written by Joseph Smith. It is a manuscript that he translated through the power of God. I just wanted to clarify.

I was initially very excited to read this, but I have had no luck opening and loading on my Nook tablet. Complete disappointment. Sorry.
