Purposes of the Book of Mormon.
“[One purpose of the Book of Mormon is] to the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that JESUS is the CHRIST, the ETERNAL GOD, manifesting himself unto all nations . . .”
President Ezra Taft Benson said:
“What is the major purpose of the Book of Mormon? To bring men to Christ and to be reconciled to Him, and then to join His Church—in that order.”
