The Essential Book of Mormon Companion (Hardcover)
First in a new series of scripture guides, this companion is meant to be exactly that — a user-friendly fellow traveler on your journey through the Book of Mormon. Between its covers you’ll find a thorough overview for every chapter in the sacred book, each highlighting key concepts and passages and offering helpful character descriptions and story line summaries. This guide offers accessible lists of main themes in a given chapter, suggestions for how we might “liken the scriptures” to ourselves, and insights into what that chapter teaches us about Jesus Christ. Useful before, during, and after reading any chapter in the Book of Mormon, this engaging guide with more than 250 images is a perfect resource for family and personal study as well as preparation for talks and lessons. Most importantly, its pages help us develop a richer testimony of the Savior and learn how we can experience a mighty change of heart through the power of His atoning sacrifice.

I have so enjoyed reading this book along with my Book Of Mormon scripture study this year. This book helped me understand more about the Book of Mormon. I enjoyed the beautiful artwork and helpful information about each chapter. I look forward to more companion books like this for the other standard works.
