“We invite all men and women everywhere to read the Book of Mormon.” —Elder Jeffery R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

A new Mormon Message featuring Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles has been created to help those who are unfamiliar with the Book of Mormon understand what it is.

In “Book of Mormon: An Introduction,” Elder Holland draws from the introduction printed in the Book of Mormon to explain and bear testimony of the book.

“The video is very simple and straightforward; yet you come away with a clear understanding of what that book is about,” said Garin Granata, Mormon Messages product manager.

Brother Granata hopes that the footage of Elder Holland, recorded especially for this video, will provide accurate and inspiring information to those searching for information on the Book of Mormon.

“We invite all men and women everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true. Those who pursue this course and ask in faith will gain a testimony of its truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost,” said Elder Holland in the video.
