More quotes on the Book of Mormon

Quotes by Richard E. Bennett, professor of Church history and doctrine, in a guest post on Richard Holzapfel's blog:

As John Taylor stated, it was the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants that “cost the best blood of the nineteenth century to bring them forth for the salvation of a ruined world” (D&C 135:6).

The published herald and evidence of the truthfulness of the Restoration was ever the Book of Mormon. More than any other factor, it was the Book of Mormon which distinguished the rise of the early Church of Jesus Christ and converted a foundation of loyal and devoted membership upon which the Church was built―and later thrived.

President Gordon B. Hinckley commented in much more recent times. “As the volumes of the first edition were circulated and read, strong men and women by the hundreds were so deeply touched that they gave up everything they owned, and in the years that followed not a few even gave their lives for the witness they carried in their hearts of the truth of this remarkable volume” (”A Testimony Vibrant and True,” Ensign, August 2005, 3).

Thats great! I stumbled upon your blog accidently. My brother and I have a weekly missionary support group to help people who wantt to share the message with support etc. I think that your blog would be useful and I will definately keep tabs. Thank you for your testimony and action towards fulfilling God's work.
