“The Book of Mormon,” Tad R. Callister unequivocally states, “is God’s crowning witness of the divinity of Jesus Christ, the prophetic calling of Joseph Smith, and the absolute truth of this Church. It is all it claims to be. It is the word of God.” But over the years, many critics have claimed otherwise.
In this logical examination of many of the critics’ claims, the author offers a compelling defense of the Book of Mormon. In addition, he outlines six further evidences of its divine authenticity and its ability to influence our lives for good. Ultimately, the author helps readers clearly understand how they can learn for themselves—not only intellectually, but spiritually—that the Book of Mormon is true.
Before The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was officially organized, its keystone was in place. That keystone, the Book of Mormon, has been shared, studied, respected, and embraced by millions of people the world over. It has also been scrutinized, analyzed, dismissed, even ridiculed by critics for nearly 200 years.
In this volume, best-selling author Tad Callister offers a comprehensive overview of many of the critics’ claims and provides carefully reasoned explanations that shed new light on the discussion. He presents compelling evidence, both physical and spiritual, for the authenticity of the Book of Mormon and invites readers on a spiritual journey that promises a witness stronger than any intellectual argument could create.
“The book focuses on a case for the Book of Mormon,” Brother Callister writes, “but in one sense the Book of Mormon does not need a case presented on its behalf. It is its own best witness—its own best evidence. . . .It bears witness of the Savior with precision and power; and it invites the Spirit in unrestrained proportions. Every aspect of the Book of Mormon bears witness of its divine origin because, in fact, it is divinely inspired.”
