The Book of Mormon (1830 Edition)


The Book of Mormon (1830 Edition)


The Book of Mormon (1830) is considered one of the most important and influential works in world literature, and has provided inspiration for writers (religious and secular) throughout history - a sacred text of the Latter Day Saint movement, which adherents believe contains writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately 2200 BC to AD 421.

Flowing through The Book of Mormon is the power, wonder, and everlasting love of Jesus Christ.

The pivotal event of this remarkable book is an appearance of Jesus Christ in the Americas shortly after his resurrection.

Mormons regard these writings as sacred scripture.

Nearly 200 million copies of The Book of Mormon have been sold to date.

JOSEPH SMITH, Jr. (1805–1844) was an American religious leader and founder of Mormonism and the Latter Day Saint movement. In 1830, when Smith was just 24, he published The Book of Mormon: An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi, and subsequently founded a religious community that continues to flourish to the present day.
