So I love to read, I can read all night and still want to keep going. Doesn’t matter if it’s fantasy, mystery, historical, sci-fi or adventure. Really it didn’t matter what tho of book, so much as it was good.

 

I can list countless books that have influenced my life or storks I’ve learned from but no book has taught me as much as the Book of Mormon.

 

Now from a purely historical point of view, the Book of Mormon tells a fascinating tale of two rival nations and many political and religious intrigues of the culture.

 

From the spiritual point of view, the Book of Mormon has no equal.

 

The Book of Mormon tells of morals, lives of men and women truly lived the gospel whose examples we can learn from. The Book of Mormon contains examples of faith, hope, love, courage, and charity.

 

In the Book of Mormon there are the men and women who become our role-models, our hero’s. Moroni, Ammon, the Stripling Warriors, Mormon or Nephi are just some of the many hero’s we can learn from. If you were to ask a member of the Church who these people are they would be able to tell you the traits and how they were great leaders we can learn from.

 

But what makes the Book of Mormon the most compelling to me is not its exciting tells or the men and women whose lives are contained in its pages. But rather with what the book says to do.

 

Moroni, the last writer/prophet of the Book of Mormon, invites us to pray, find out if this book is true.

 

 

In essence Moroni is saying prove me.

 

Prove me. Prove me.

 

 

Moroni isn’t asking us to take his word that this is true, he’s not asking us to follow Joseph Smith blindly and just take his word that this book is true.

 

No, Moroni tells us to prove him.

 

He promises that either God will reveal that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God or that it won’t happen.

 

The Book of Mormon can’t be half true, it can’t be just a good book.

 

It is either all of God or all of the Devil.

 

Really that’s pretty much it.

 

So that’s what us missionaries are out here to do, we want to give people that chance for themselves to find out if this is true. To either prove what we’re saying is true or prove that it isn’t.

 

We invite others to find out if this true because if it is, it will be the most important news you will receive in your life.

 

So do you want to know what the news is? Well you gotta give this book a chance then.
