    Mandy: In my Book of Mormon Jesus is blessing the Nephite children.

    Matt: Yeah? Well, in mine Captain Moroni is fighting a war.

    Mandy: No he isn’t. Your book is closed.

    Matt: So what? He’s still fighting inside.

    Mandy: Prove it!

    Matt: Let’s see, it’s … right here!

    Mandy: Well, of course. Because now your book’s open. Closed books don’t do any good.

    Matt: OK, I get it.

    Mandy: Come on. Sit down and read with me.
