    This book is much more entertaining if you read it as a "historical novel" rather than trying to read it as a religious text. Honestly, because of the sheer volume of anachronistic errors contained in Joseph Smith's book, even trying to read it as a novel is taxing. The Book of Mor...

    While certainly not comprehensive, here are some of my observations from reading this entire book in three days: * Nephi is hard for the proud to like. If this sounds sacrilege, and you've never had this thought before, congratulations...you're probably not proud. But, pride is som...

    Elder Ballard of the LDS Church, talking to a group of graduates at BYU-Hawaii, encouraged us to use the media, specifically blogs, to teach of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'd like all who read this post to know that this is a book that has changed my life. It is a...

    Unlike most religious texts that are approached metaphorically, the Book of Mormon claims to be an historical history of the Americas, which is a verifiable claim. The linguistic, anachronistic, biological, sociological, and archaeological evidence against this being a legitimate h...

    Without sounding sacreligious, I am profoundly grateful for this book. It's a book about answers to personal challenges. It's a book about how to live your life. It's a book about two civilizations and their relationship with a loving Father in Heaven. There really isn't a rating you ...

    My Mom gave me the Book of Mormon as a gift to me when I was still a student at Seattle University. I reading it off and on for the next week or so and determined that it was an obscure history book with weird names, place-names and events and in fact could even have been written by a ...

    A book I've read more than any other book (unless you count a few picture books). The Book of Mormon is at the foundation of my testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I love this book! 5th Time - 3/7/91 6th Time - 5/3/91 7th Time - 11/3/91 8th Time - 4/26/92 9th Time - ...

    The review process for this book has become a farce. Mormons give the book 5 stars because they believe in this junk. Non-Mormons give it 1 star because they recognize it for the fiction that it is. And so it goes. ...

    Having been raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I was exposed to this book at an early age. Regardless, I did not seriously read this book until my early 20's. At that time I truly wanted to know for myself if it was the word of God as proclaimed by the church I b...

    I did actually read the entire book. Each week with some missionaries that discussed it with me. My grandparents are Mormon and after visiting the Temple in Salt Lake City on the way to California, I signed up for discussion. I love my grandparents and if some cult was going to take ov...

    I'm not Mormon; I know that this book is merely fiction and nothing more. Someone already pointed out the major flaws in credibility (horses, wheath, cities, dozens of events that never happened). This makes this book rather funny than historical. I'm pondering about sorting it under "...

    Two weeks ago I didn't know I was having appendicitis. I thought I was dying. Seriously, as in calling my family from where I lay curled up on the floor. I can walk a few blocks now, so that's great. Go grandma! As for being able to concentrate on things, it pretty much consists of wat...

    A MUST READ! Count Leo Tolstoy, the great Russian author, statesman, and philosopher, held [this] opinion as to the possible future destiny of the "American religion" founded under the instrumentality of the Prophet Joseph Smith. Thomas J. Yates related an experience he had while a ...

    The LDS (Mormon) church does everything it can to instill the idea that if a person reads this book, prays with ?real intent? and ?faith in Christ? (and other loaded phrases) that she/he will receive a burning euphoric feeling. We are expected to believe that an experience like...

    This book has facilitated greater change in my life than any other book making it my all-time favorite book! It testifies of God's goodness and love. It better clarifies His whole plan for us: where we came from, why in the world we are alive, and what happens after we die. It is writt...

    I don't know what I can say more than has been said, but I wish to add my voice to those who know this book to be true. I would like to issue a challenge to everyone--regardless whether or not you have read it: 1. Obtain a brand new, unmarked copy of the Book of Mormon. One of the f...

    I've read some of the other reviews of this book that point out some intellectual garbage that they say can't be proved (without actually looking at the evidence) or the literary problems with the book. They're missing the whole point of it. This book can only be understood with a spir...

    A must read each day. Hope for the helpless and those willing to do what is right no matter what the challenge. Writing by individuals and church representatives anciently who were willing to live by the higher law (charity, not just Moses' 10 commandments: an eye for an eye; equal jus...

    I read this as part of a grand (unfinished) project to read all the major world religious texts. I also read it because a Mormon suggested I should read it and pray about it to see if God would reveal to me that it was true. I did, but God made no such revelation. I did find some parts...

    This is the most stunning, life-changing book. I am a Bible fan, and so I am quite familiar with the principles taught by Jesus Christ. This book is a similar book, but it was written by prophets in the ancient Americas, instead of Palestine/Middle-East area. The prophets likewise tau...

    I have read this book. Really. It took more than a year, laying at my bedside (the book, not me). Mark Twain was spot on when he called it "anesthesia in print." I have rarely been so underwhelmed. I only wish it were possible to give it less than one star. Five thousand 5-star rati...

    Hands down, the best book I've ever read. I make a point to read it everyday. ...

    This book was voted one of the top ten life-changing books by readers of Parade Magazine. Each time I read it I understand something new and find something profound and relevant to my life. If you understand the context of how the book was translated and appreciate the fact that an une...

    There's not much I can say about this book that won't potentially sound cliche to those who have read and believe in this book or absolutely ridiculous to those who, having read it or not, do not believe in this book. But if there are a few things I can say that might pique your intere...

    As a young girl of 14, I read this book during a lonely summer. My family and I had just moved from Tennessee, and it was my first summer in Utah. It was a slow summer, since I had only made a few friends. So, I decided to hole up in my room at night, open my windows, and let the sweet...

    A book this large, in translation, and covering this many years is bound to be difficult for some to get through, but it is incredibly rewarding. An entire civilization from beginning to end (about 1,000 years worth) is contained through short glimpses of those who were chosen to keep ...

    The book upon which my whole life is based...how could I not recommend it to everyone!!?!? It is challenging, and not intended for the reader looking to conduct an exercise in literary critique (although I would stand by it in such a test), but meant to provide the means by which you...

    This book is much more entertaining if you read it as a "historical novel" rather than trying to read it as a religious text. Honestly, because of the sheer volume of anachronistic errors contained in Joseph Smith's book, even trying to read it as a novel is taxing. The Book of Mor...

    I read this as part of a grand (unfinished) project to read all the major world religious texts. I also read it because a Mormon suggested I should read it and pray about it to see if God would reveal to me that it was true. I did, but God made no such revelation. I did find some parts...

    This is the most stunning, life-changing book. I am a Bible fan, and so I am quite familiar with the principles taught by Jesus Christ. This book is a similar book, but it was written by prophets in the ancient Americas, instead of Palestine/Middle-East area. The prophets likewise tau...

    I have read this book. Really. It took more than a year, laying at my bedside (the book, not me). Mark Twain was spot on when he called it "anesthesia in print." I have rarely been so underwhelmed. I only wish it were possible to give it less than one star. Five thousand 5-star rati...

    This book is much more entertaining if you read it as a "historical novel" rather than trying to read it as a religious text. Honestly, because of the sheer volume of anachronistic errors contained in Joseph Smith's book, even trying to read it as a novel is taxing. The Book of Mor...

    While certainly not comprehensive, here are some of my observations from reading this entire book in three days: * Nephi is hard for the proud to like. If this sounds sacrilege, and you've never had this thought before, congratulations...you're probably not proud. But, pride is som...

    I have read this book. Really. It took more than a year, laying at my bedside (the book, not me). Mark Twain was spot on when he called it "anesthesia in print." I have rarely been so underwhelmed. I only wish it were possible to give it less than one star. Five thousand 5-star rati...

    I have read this book. Really. It took more than a year, laying at my bedside (the book, not me). Mark Twain was spot on when he called it "anesthesia in print." I have rarely been so underwhelmed. I only wish it were possible to give it less than one star. Five thousand 5-star rati...

    This set of scriptures is the best way to learn about the core beliefs of the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (aka the Mormons). This book, like the Holy Bible, help us to learn more about our Savior, Jesus Christ and his mission and role in our Heavenly Fath...

    Hands down, the best book I've ever read. I make a point to read it everyday. ...

    This book was voted one of the top ten life-changing books by readers of Parade Magazine. Each time I read it I understand something new and find something profound and relevant to my life. If you understand the context of how the book was translated and appreciate the fact that an une...

    There's not much I can say about this book that won't potentially sound cliche to those who have read and believe in this book or absolutely ridiculous to those who, having read it or not, do not believe in this book. But if there are a few things I can say that might pique your intere...

    As a young girl of 14, I read this book during a lonely summer. My family and I had just moved from Tennessee, and it was my first summer in Utah. It was a slow summer, since I had only made a few friends. So, I decided to hole up in my room at night, open my windows, and let the sweet...

    This book is much more entertaining if you read it as a "historical novel" rather than trying to read it as a religious text. Honestly, because of the sheer volume of anachronistic errors contained in Joseph Smith's book, even trying to read it as a novel is taxing. The Book of Mor...

    While certainly not comprehensive, here are some of my observations from reading this entire book in three days: * Nephi is hard for the proud to like. If this sounds sacrilege, and you've never had this thought before, congratulations...you're probably not proud. But, pride is som...

    Elder Ballard of the LDS Church, talking to a group of graduates at BYU-Hawaii, encouraged us to use the media, specifically blogs, to teach of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'd like all who read this post to know that this is a book that has changed my life. It is a...

    Without sounding sacreligious, I am profoundly grateful for this book. It's a book about answers to personal challenges. It's a book about how to live your life. It's a book about two civilizations and their relationship with a loving Father in Heaven. There really isn't a rating you ...

    A book I've read more than any other book (unless you count a few picture books). The Book of Mormon is at the foundation of my testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I love this book! 5th Time - 3/7/91 6th Time - 5/3/91 7th Time - 11/3/91 8th Time - 4/26/92 9th Time - ...

    This book has facilitated greater change in my life than any other book making it my all-time favorite book! It testifies of God's goodness and love. It better clarifies His whole plan for us: where we came from, why in the world we are alive, and what happens after we die. It is writt...

    I have read this book. Really. It took more than a year, laying at my bedside (the book, not me). Mark Twain was spot on when he called it "anesthesia in print." I have rarely been so underwhelmed. I only wish it were possible to give it less than one star. Five thousand 5-star rati...

    This set of scriptures is the best way to learn about the core beliefs of the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (aka the Mormons). This book, like the Holy Bible, help us to learn more about our Savior, Jesus Christ and his mission and role in our Heavenly Fath...

    Hands down, the best book I've ever read. I make a point to read it everyday. ...

    This book was voted one of the top ten life-changing books by readers of Parade Magazine. Each time I read it I understand something new and find something profound and relevant to my life. If you understand the context of how the book was translated and appreciate the fact that an une...

    There's not much I can say about this book that won't potentially sound cliche to those who have read and believe in this book or absolutely ridiculous to those who, having read it or not, do not believe in this book. But if there are a few things I can say that might pique your intere...

    As a young girl of 14, I read this book during a lonely summer. My family and I had just moved from Tennessee, and it was my first summer in Utah. It was a slow summer, since I had only made a few friends. So, I decided to hole up in my room at night, open my windows, and let the sweet...

    A book this large, in translation, and covering this many years is bound to be difficult for some to get through, but it is incredibly rewarding. An entire civilization from beginning to end (about 1,000 years worth) is contained through short glimpses of those who were chosen to keep ...

    The book upon which my whole life is based...how could I not recommend it to everyone!!?!? It is challenging, and not intended for the reader looking to conduct an exercise in literary critique (although I would stand by it in such a test), but meant to provide the means by which you...
