Overview

In every edition since the first, the Book of Mormon text has been formatted for ease of reference and use in church meetings. As useful as that is, it also tends to obscure the nature of the original record. Like the Bible, the Book of Mormon is much more than verse after verse of identically formatted text; it includes ancient headings, direct quotations, majestic poetry, and much more. This new Readable Scriptures edition uses the standard text of the Book of Mormon but removes the modern overlay of verse numbers, columns, summaries, and cross-references; then it formats the text based on the content of the record itself--as headings, poetry, block quotations, or whatever is required, including modern paragraphing to organize verses in context. The result is an edition that shows the probable structure of the ancient record and is easy to read and understand. Appropriately formatting the text of the Book of Mormon does more than increase understanding, however; it helps reveal the complexity and sophistication of this remarkable sacred record. For all who are serious students of the scriptures, this new edition will pay rich dividends in deeper comprehension and appreciation.
