                                                                                                                                                                             “I should have brought a Book of Mormon with me.”

Have you ever had this thought before? It often comes during an exhilarating spiritual moment where you’ve been answering gospel questions that a friend, a colleague, or even a stranger has asked you.

When the right opportunity arrives to offer them a copy of the Book of Mormon so they can discover the truth for themselves, you’re likely empty-handed.

A simple solution is to share the Book of Mormon app. Available for iOS, Android and Windows in more than 100 languages, the app allows you to instantly share the entire digital version of the Book of Mormon with anyone, anytime and anywhere.


                                                                                                President Russell M. Nelson has stated how imperative the Book of Mormon is in sharing the gospel. He explained that “the Book of Mormon is central to this work. It declares the doctrine of the gathering. It causes people to learn about Jesus Christ, to believe His gospel, and to join His Church. In fact, if there were no Book of Mormon, the promised gathering of Israel would not occur” (“The Gathering of Scattered Israel,” October 2006 general conference).

The Book of Mormon app is much simpler for a first-time reader to use than the Gospel Library app, where the Book of Mormon is just one of many other resources. This simple, digital version of the Book of Mormon doesn’t have footnotes or cross-references, which makes it easier for people not familiar with the Book of Mormon to read it or listen to audio recordings (available as pre-recorded audio or using text-to-speech technology).

Other resources for first-time readers include:

  • A simple reference guide to key scriptures about Jesus Christ, doctrines, people, places and events in the Book of Mormon.
  • A link to find answers to common questions at ChurchofJesusChrist.org/ComeuntoChrist
  • Helpful information to get in touch with missionaries in the area
  • Links to corresponding Book of Mormon videos
  • Information on meetinghouses near them

As you show your love to others by simply sharing and inviting them to experience the Book of Mormon, you will be connecting them to these blessings that President Nelson promised: “The truths of the Book of Mormon have the power to heal, comfort, restore, succor, strengthen, console, and cheer our souls. … I promise that as you ponder what you study, the windows of heaven will open, and you will receive answers to your own questions and direction for your own life” (“The Book of Mormon: What Would Your Life Be Like without It?” October 2017 general conference).
