The Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon is an ancient record that teaches about Jesus Christ. The men, women, and families in the Book of Mormon struggled with life’s challenges, just like we do. Today, we can see ourselves in their stories and be inspired to be better ourselves and help others the way Jesus did.

It’s a true book

Like the Holy Bible, the Book of Mormon is the true word of God. We know that’s a bold statement. But the Book of Mormon promises that if you ask God if it’s true, He will tell you. Which brings up another question: If you got that answer from God, would you follow it?

The Book of Mormon changes lives

The Book of Mormon was written to inspire readers to make decisions that would ultimately improve their lives and bring them closer to God. It was the authors’ hope that their words would lead people to Jesus Christ, lift sadness and fear, offer purpose and direction to people’s outlook on life, and give people evidence that God is still “a God of miracles” (Mormon 9:10). Not only that, but reading the book is also likely to bring you into contact with other believers, a community where you can strengthen each other on the road to happiness.

The Book of Mormon is a book of inspired scripture that exists to give us direction in our lives and connect us to Jesus. Where does the name come from? Hundreds of years ago, an ancient prophet named Mormon compiled a record of his people. Turns out they faced a lot of the same challenges that we do. And just like us, they found strength when they turned to Jesus Christ. Today, the Book of Mormon is meant to be read alongside the Bible as a way to feel closer to God and understand His great love for all of us.

Here’s a short synopsis of the epic thousand-year history:

In essence, the Book of Mormon is a story about a family. Lehi is a prophet in Jerusalem. God warns Lehi in a dream to take his family and leave Jerusalem because it will be taken over. They cross the ocean to the Americas. Laman and Lemuel, the oldest sons, don’t believe their father Lehi was inspired. They are always complaining. Their younger brother Nephi is full of faith. Nephi is chosen by God to lead the family and be their teacher.

The people eventually split into two groups: the Nephites and the Lamanites. These groups are often at war and their faith is constantly being tested. This faith fills the pages of the Book of Mormon in the form of powerful sermons, life lessons, and spiritual experiences.

After Jesus is resurrected, He appears to the people in the Americas. He teaches them about baptism and forgiveness. He heals their sick and blesses their children. He establishes His church. Unlike those in Jerusalem, the people listen to Jesus. Afterward, they live in peace for hundreds of years. 

Over time, the people lose faith and war breaks out again, wiping out nearly the entire population.

Like the Bible, the Book of Mormon has many authors. It is a collection of journals and histories passed down from one writer to another over a period of about 1,000 years. The first author is the prophet Nephi, who left Jerusalem with his family in 600 BC and sailed to the Americas. Nephi passed the record to his younger brother, who then gave it to his son. Each author gave the record to someone they trusted. Mormon was the name of the prophet who gathered all the writings into one book, so it is called the Book of Mormon.

In 1823, Joseph Smith was led to the ancient records and translated them by the power of God.

The Book of Mormon supports the Bible and often clarifies the teachings of Jesus Christ. In the Bible, both Mark and Luke tell the same stories about Jesus, but you can learn more when you get information from two perspectives. 

Together, the Book of Mormon and Bible contain thousands of years’ worth of inspiration, guidance, and instruction. By studying both books, you can get a better understanding of who God is and what He wants for you.
