Read the Book of Mormon

“[The] Book of Mormon … is before us as an added witness of the divinity and reality of the Lord Jesus Christ, of the encompassing beneficence of His atonement, and of His coming forth from the darkness of the grave.”

Gordon B. Hinckley
(“The Greatest Miracle in Human History,” Ensign, May 1994, 72)

“The holy scriptures are for children, to fill their eager minds with sacred truth.”

Thomas S. Monson
(“‘Come, Learn of Me,’” Ensign, December 1985, 48)

“A person will never be truly on the road to conversion until he has at least a beginning witness that … the Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ.”

James E. Faust
(“Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon,” The Friend (Liahona), February 1996, 6)

“Like all books of profound value, [the Book of Mormon] is not casual reading. But if you persist, I assure you that it will be the most rewarding book you have ever set your mind to read.”

Boyd K. Packer
(“The Things of My Soul,” Ensign, May 1986, 59)

“I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.”

Joseph Smith
(History of the Church, 4:461)

“I bless you with increased understanding of the Book of Mormon. I promise you that … if we will daily sup from its pages and abide by its precepts, God will pour out upon each child of Zion and the Church a blessing hitherto unknown.”

Ezra Taft Benson
(“A Sacred Responsibility,” Ensign, May 1986, 78)

“And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.”

(Moro. 10:4)
