The Book of Mormon stands alongside the Bible as the foundational sacred text of Mormonism, one of the world's youngest yet fastest-growing religions. Translated by the prophet Joseph Smith from ancient writings inscribed on golden plates, the Book of Mormon is an account of people living on the American continents in a timeline that parallels that of the Bible. The text covers a thousand years of loss, discovery, war, peace, and spiritual principles that focus on the teachings of Jesus Christ. Jana Riess's accurate and understandable account of the history and context in which the Book of Mormon was written, as well as her presentation of the central teachings of the text, dispel many of the misconceptions caused by the controversy that has surrounded it since its original publication in 1830. Riess's insightful yet unobtrusive commentary makes the Book of Mormon accessible to all readers, regardless of religious background.
