The Book of Mormon  
Another Testament of Jesus Christ
WHAT IS THE BOOK OF MORMON?

                             
The Book of Mormon is a volume of holy scripture comparable to the Bible. It is a record of God's dealings with ancient inhabitants of the Americas who came from the eastern hemisphere, and it contains, as does the Bible, the ever-lasting gospel of Jesus Christ. It was recorded by prophets who testified of Jesus Christ and the way to salvation. Joseph Smith, the modern prophet who brought forth the Book of Mormon, said that the Book of Mormon is "the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book" (History of the Church, 4:461).
