Author: Transl. Joseph Smith

The Book of Mormon is the centerpiece of a major religion and a compelling historical narrative, but what surprises me is its tendency to become personal. It leaps into intimacy and draws forth one’s most pressing questions. Its insight into what makes life satisfying and where to look for solid happiness are compelling, and no other book I read this year has motivated me more to be my best self or to think more clearly about my life.
