The real thing
Many comments on the book of mormon are not really about the book at all, but rather about mormonism. i think some of these people have never read it. about the book itself: it's like the bible, but easier in many ways. the language is a little older than many modern versions of the bible, though (like the king james version). the main original documents were handed down through generations, then condensed and compiled, so the chronology flows more smoothly, though it isn't completely continuous. theologically, it is complementary to the bible. if you've never read the bible or are just getting into christianity, it's a great place to start. if you are already devout but wonder if something's missing or if you just have questions, it's a great place to get answers. if you aren't sure what's true, it can help you figure it out. obviously i think it's inspired, and a great book. i've read it more than any other. don't take my word for it. there are plenty of other opinions. read it yourself. if you're looking for truth, pray about it and decide what you think.
