Book of Mormon

ArtBook__134_134__EzraTaftBenson____[1]“There is a power in the book [of Mormon] which will begin to flow into your lives the moment you begin a serious study of the book. You will find greater power to resist temptation. You will find the power to avoid deception. You will find the power to stay on the strait and narrow path. The scriptures are called ‘the words of life’, and nowhere is that more true than it is of the Book of Mormon. When you begin to hunger and thirst after those words, you will find life in greater and greater abundance.”
-Ezra Taft Benson


36923_all_22-straightupmcconkie“Few men on earth, either in or out of the Church, have caught the vision of what the Book of Mormon is all about. Few are they among men who know the part it has played and will yet play in preparing the way for the coming of Him of whom it is a new witness. … The Book of Mormon shall so affect men that the whole earth and all its peoples will have been influenced and governed by it. … There is no greater issue ever to confront mankind in modern times than this: Is the Book of Mormon the mind and will and voice of God to all men?”
– Bruce R. McConkie

– Ezra Taft Benson

ArtBook__134_134__EzraTaftBenson____[1]“We do not have to prove the Book of Mormon is true.  The book is its own proof.  All we need to do is read it and declare it.  The Book of Mormon is not on trial – the people of the world, including the members of the Church, are on trial as to what they will do with this sacred witness of Christ.”
– Ezra Taft Benson
