What is the Book of Mormon?

David
The Book of Mormon, as its subtitle states, is "Another Testament of Jesus Christ." Mormons believe the Old Testament and New Testament in the Bible, and testify that God has given his children another testament of his Son. Whereas the Bible is the record of His people living in the area around Israel, The Book of Mormon is the record of the ancient inhabitants of the Americas and God's dealings with them. Among the many prophecies and writings by ancient prophets, it records the visitation of Jesus Christ to these people shortly after his death and resurrection. The book is named after one of the principal writers, named Mormon. With the help of God, it was translated by a modern prophet, Joseph Smith and was published in 1830. Mormons believe it to be the word of God. Show more Show less
