“Another Testament of Jesus Christ”
Before you even get to 1 Nephi chapter 1, it’s clear that the Book of Mormon is no ordinary book. Its introductory pages describe a backstory unlike any other—including visits of angels, an ancient record buried for centuries in a hillside, and an obscure farmer translating the record by the power of God. The Book of Mormon is not just a history of ancient American civilizations. It contains “the fulness of the everlasting gospel” (introduction to the Book of Mormon), and God Himself directed its coming forth—how it was written, how it was preserved, and how it was made available in our day. This year, as you read the Book of Mormon, pray about it, and apply its teachings, you will invite its power into your life, and you may feel to say, as the Three Witnesses did in their testimony, “It is marvelous in [my] eyes.”
Here’s the book I was talking about. I really like the information he gives.
Don’t forget to listen to Season 1 Episode 15 if you haven’t. It’s the best way to study the Book of Mormon I have found!
