“And now I, Mormon, make a record of the things which I have both seen and heard, and call it the Book of Mormon.” – Mormon 1:1
“The Book of Mormon confirms the teachings of the Old Testament. It confirms the teachings of the New Testament. It restores ‘many plain and precious things’ lost or taken from them. It is in truth another testament of Jesus Christ.” – Boyd K. Packer
