The Book of Mormon Made Easier, Part 1: 1 Nephi through Words of Mormon (Paperback)
Noted teacher and gospel scholar, David J. Ridges, makes the Book of Mormon come alive in this new volume. Using the same unique in-the-verse notes format as found in his other Gospel Studies Series books, the author helps members gain an instant basic understanding of this book of scripture.
The complete text of The Book of Mormon, from 1 Nephi through Words of Mormon, is included, with notes between the verses clarifying and alerting readers to major concepts and messages. Readers will find the verse-by-verse explanation and notes for the Isaiah Chapters in this portion of the Book of Mormon extremely helpful.

Helped me read to my nephew
by Customer - reviewed on June 28, 2010
My nephew came into my care with a first grade reading level in 9th grade. We read the Book of Mormon together using the Made Easier books by David Ridges. (I'm a convert) And, after a year my nephew level of reading was 8th grade! The verse by verse explanations were very easy to understand. The piecing together of who the different peoples were was clear to see with Ridges' telling us who every body was and who the book was making reference to. The reading of the Book of Mormon using Ridges' study guide was the best idea to help me (and my nephew) learn the stories, the doctrine, and the glad message of the Gospel. It changed my life! Thank you, thank you for publishing this work. Thank you.
I have increased my knowledge

I have read the Book of Mormon many times in my life but have never understood it so well. 2nd Nephi came to life as I began to understand the words of Isaiah. I find more and more people are studying this book and feel the same way I do. This book is a great help in studying the Book of Mormon
Like Being in His Classroom

I am totally enjoying reading the Book of Mormon this way. Sometimes you have a small question and would rather not pull out the reference books or get on the internet to find an answer. Bro. Ridges has all of the appropriate comments in just the right places. It has enhanced my study of the Book of Mormon - like he's standing in front of a classroom giving you these tidbits.
