Youth and adults alike will appreciate this accessible discussion of scholarly evidences clearly demonstrating that the Book of Mormon could never have been invented by Joseph Smith. Evidences include “wordprints,” “witnesses,” “chiasmus,” “Hebraisms,” and other discoveries by modern scholars that can strengthen one's testimony of the Book of Mormon. Ultimately, however: “The most important evidence that the Book of Mormon is a book written by ancient prophets,” says John Hilton III, “is the feeling I get from the Holy Ghost when I diligently study it. You can have this same feeling too.”
“Joseph Smith once prophesied that the world will prove by circumstantial evidence that the Book of Mormon is true. Has that prophecy been fulfilled? This engaging book gives you the basic facts and then invites you to be the judge.” — John W. Welch, Professor of Law and Founder of FARMS.

I have this little book I just bought that fits perfectly in my sons side pocket of his little scripture carrier. It is short, sweet and to the point. I LOVE THAT! Cuz I don't have a ton of time to read all the time and it's nice to finish a book I start. It is nice to know many interesting things explained in a very simple and 'easy to understand' way.
