The Book of Mormon

Here is a succinct video introduction to the Book of Mormon, the book of scripture Mormons get their nickname from.

I have read the Book of Mormon many times.  I suppose it’s strange to think of a “new” book of scripture comparable to the Bible (because that’s what the Book of Mormon is). However, to me the Book of Mormon is so familiar, it’s a part of me.  I have been helped and comforted through it’s pages so many times that I cannot doubt it’s truthfulness.  I feel that in the inherent goodness and beauty of it’s passages.  Words like these:

“And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.”  ETHER 12:27

That is true. I know it in my heart.  It gives me courage to face my challenges and perspective about why I have them.  There are literally thousands of passages like this in the Book of Mormon.  Passages that I love for their undiluted truth.  I guess that’s the best description I can come up with for the strength of the Book of Mormon.  It is pure, undiluted truth about God, Jesus Christ, and life in general.
