What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon testifies of the truthfulness of the Bible and of the divinity of Jesus Christ. It concerns several very small groups of people who left the Holy Lands and ended up in what is today known as the Americas. They had the scriptures that had been written by the time they left (about 600 BC for the primary group) and they were led by prophets, who received continuing revelation concerning God and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

After the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, He visited these people, who had been waiting for His arrival. He helped them to organize their church and ministered to them for several days. The record of this visit is a powerful testimony that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the entire world, not just a small portion of it. It also proves His divinity, since it would have been impossible for Him to visit them otherwise. The Book of Mormon is a second witness of Jesus Christ that has changed millions of lives.

This site, which is by ordinary, unofficial Mormons, will introduce you to the Book of Mormon. You’ll learn what the book is about, who the heroes and villains of the book are, and how Mormons view the book. You’ll also learn a little about the basic beliefs of the Mormons along the way. We’re excited to share with you a book that has changed our lives.

The Book of Mormon is considered by Mormons to be a companion to, not a replacement for, the Bible. Mormons—a nickname often used to refer to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—believe in, revere, and study the Holy Bible, using the King James translation. Although there is a “Mormon” version of the Bible, it is the same unchanged King James translation used by millions world-wide. The “Mormon” parts are the parts that were not original—the footnotes, chapter summaries, and study aids.

Can I read the Book of Mormon for myself?

Yes. In fact, the articles on this website will be more meaningful to you if you read the book while you study. You can read the book free on the Internet—no registration or personal information required, listen to it read aloud, or request a free print copy be delivered to you by a missionary.
