A woman was in a church meeting, studying Philippians 4:8: "Whatsoever things are true, ... honest, ... pure, ...lovely, [or] of good report; if there be any virtue, and ... any praise, think on these things." She felt the Holy Spirit say to her, "Is there anything honest, pure, or lovely in your soap opera?"
She had to confess that the program was not lovely or of good report or praiseworthy. Then the Spirit whispered another question: "So what are you going to do about it?"
What this sister heard from the Spirit that day were life-changing questions, and her decision to give up her soap opera made a profound difference in her life.
Where can we find questions that will awaken us out of those mental—and spiritual—doldrums? Popular authors John Hilton III and Brad Wilcox help us recognize and ponder fifty-two powerful questions from the Book of Mormon—one for each week of the year. One short chapter each week has the power to change your life.
- Have miracles ceased?
- Have ye inquired of the Lord?
- Have ye spiritually been born of God?
- Know ye not that ye are in the hands of God?
Joseph Smith promised that we would get nearer to God through the Book of Mormon than through any other book. Pondering its inspired questions can propel us forward to attain that promise.

I have been searching for a way to bring my scripture reading to life. Now I found it! Everyone says to keep a study journal, but I didn't know what to write in it until I found this book. Now I am responding to the questions in the Book of Mormon and I am finding so much to think about and write about. The short easy-to-read chapters in this book are just enough to get my brain going. The stories and personal experiences shared by the authors are so good. The quotes they share are excellent as well. I have seldom thought so deeply about the scriptures. One question a week. I can do this!

I have been reading this book little by little before bed and have loved the spiritual insight and application that John Hilton III and Brad Wilcox offer. The chapters are short (about 4 pages each) and provide great discussion on questions from the Book of Mormon. Each chapter begins with the question from the Book of Mormon, then question is then developed using stories and analogies and words of the prophets so it can be better understood, and then the authors help the reader make application of the question. My favorite part is how at the end of the chapter the question is re-stated in large, bold font for the reader, almost like an invitation to put its principles into practice. Whether you read it all in one sitting, or a little every few nights, or just take a question per week for a year, this book is bound to inspire and bless you.

I have found many answers to my prayers as I have read this book. I love the stories that are told and the doctrine that is discussed. I suggest this book to anyone especially those looking for ways to study the scriptures in a more deep yet simple way.
