A Very Special Book - Introduction

9.01.2011

Last week I received an email from Church headquarters in Salt Lake City.  A member of the Curriculum Department of the LDS Church asked if I would be willing to preview Church materials before their release and share them with my blog readers...that's you!  I happily agreed.

I was sent a preview copy of a special issue of the Ensign magazine (a monthly publication for the LDS church) which will be published this coming October. I want to share some of it with you. 

When people ask me questions about my faith I always mention The Book of Mormon.  Almost everybody knows we have a book of scripture that we use hand in hand with the Bible.  It is an amazing book that has taught me of Jesus Christ, His ministry and his love for each of us.  This special issue of the Ensign is dedicated solely to The Book of Mormon.  Here is an expert from the magazine...

Few topics are worth dedicating a whole issue to, but the Book of Mormon is one of them. In this issue, prophets past and present, as well as members all over the world, testify of this unique book of scripture.

What's really great about this special issue us that it simply and beautifully covers many of the most frequently asked questions about the Book of Mormon.  That makes it fabulous for people who are not LDS to be able to learn more about this book.  As well as giving new members, children, teens and even adult members a refresher on this amazing book.

Each Tuesday in September I will share a tidbit from this special issue of the Ensign that I particularly liked and I hope you will join me.

What a great opportunity for you! I love the special Ensign issues that are put out, and this one looks beautiful. And what an amazing way to have missionary opportunities. This would be a great gift for people who are a little more familiar with our beliefs, or who have been introduced to the church before. I may have to pick up several copies to pass along.
