Meet the Author

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is often referred to as the LDS Church or Mormon Church. Casual names for the Church and its members mostly originate outside the Church, and they tend to perpetuate misunderstandings about what Latter-day Saints believe. The Church emphasizes its central belief that Jesus is the Christ. Church doctrine revolves around Christ's atonement as the defining event in world history. Mormon doctrine rests upon the principles taught by the Savior during His ministry; relayed through ancient prophets as recorded in scripture; restored through the prophet Joseph Smith; and continued through the voice of succeeding prophets and leaders of the Church. The doctrines of Christ are believed to be eternal. The Church calls itself "the restored Church," the original gospel preached by Jesus Christ having been corrupted after the death of the original apostles. [1]

The nickname "Mormon" is actually derived from the name of an ancient prophet who lived in the Americas and who recorded, organized, and abridged the scriptural history of his people. His account (along with the accounts of others who left Jerusalem around the time of the Babylonian captivity) is contained within an inspired record known as the Book of Mormon. Translated by Joseph Smith and first published in 1830, the Book of Mormon stands with the Bible as "Another Testament of Jesus Christ." It reveals the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, His plan for our salvation, and His dealings with the early inhabitants of this continent. It contains a marvelous account of His appearance to a multitude shortly after His resurrection. Christ appeared to these ancient peoples, because they were offshoots of the House of Israel. They lived the Law of Moses, looking forward to the coming of their Messiah. Their prophets testified to them that this Messiah would be the Christ, and that he would live and teach in Judea. The Book of Mormon peoples received signs of His birth and crucifixion before His appearance to them as a resurrected being. The Book of Mormon is accepted by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as divine scripture, along with the Bible. Other scriptures comprising the Standard Works of the Church are The Pearl of Great Price, which includes accounts of Abraham, Enoch, and Moses, and the Doctrine and Covenants, a compilation of modern revelations.

    I prefer the paper version

    Here's the thing, I downloaded the .pdf version from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint's website, but I found it unwieldy and hard to work with. So, when I discovered that, for a small sum, I could download the Book of Mormon from the Barnes and Noble website, I was pleased. However, it's still unwieldy and hard to work with.

    This leads me to a conundrum. How do I rate what I believe to be holy scripture? The content is good, just finding it is difficult. If there is a way to go to a specific chapter and verse without a lot of clicking, I haven't found it. I wasn't expecting cross references or foot-notes, but I'm surprised at how much I miss them.

    Bottom line, I'm glad I have this for, say, when I'm traveling, so I don't have to weigh my bags down with extra books--I mean, that's the whole purpose behind buying a nook in the first place, right? But for Church, or my every day study, I'm going to stick with my old dead tree version.

    Not my favorite in e-book format

    The e-book format is a little difficult for this book. Also, you can't highlight scriptures, which is a benefit of the hard copy. Still great to have at my fingertips though!
    And if you're interested in this book, you can also request a free hard copy from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    Some Respect Please

    Morminism is not a cult. I myself am not mormon, but I have a great friend who is. It's a branch of christanity like protastants or methodists. They deserve our respect as do people do of all religions. Be respectful, they're not posting mean things on the bible review page.

    Awesome

    I just started Young Woman and i know without a shadow of a doubt that this book is true. The Book of Mormon is a TRUE testament of Christ. I beg anyone who hasent read to PLEASE read it, LDS or not. It is awesome. Jesus Christ WAS here on Earth. Heavenly Father WAS his father. The Holy Ghost WAS and IS here on Earth with him and with us! They were all different beings. Read when Jesus was baptised. They are here for us. Dont believe me? Pray. God will answer.

    Quick conversion of the Project Gutenberg version.

    The table of contents is very basic. The text is from the gutenberg web site text file. There are better Nook versions available.

    To the people below

    Immature people! All the haters r like the teenage boys who go to youtube videos just to write crap and get attention. Have u even read it? Do u even know what its about? And for all of u who call joseph smith a liar cuz hes just a "regular human" are just dumb cuz there are plenty of those in the bible. Theyre called prophets. Please be respectful to the book and quit writing poor reviews before u even read it.
