Gordon B. Hinckley- Chapter 16: The Power of the Book of Mormon

Have you ever felt the Power of the Book of Mormon?

Remember the 2005 challenge Gordon B. Hinckley have for us to read the Book of Mormon by the end of the year? Many came away from the feeling the Power of the Book of Mormon. This week will discuss lesson 16 from the Gordon B. Hinckley Manual.

One of the biggest points we focus on in this episode is how the Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ and helps us to know him better. The Power of the Book of Mormon is essentially the power of Jesus Christ and his ability to change hearts.

The Power in the Book of Mormon even has reach in other mediums. We hear of story after story of people who are converted to the Gospel because they went to the Book of Mormon musical and became interested in the book. The Church has even taken out ads in the programs of the musical.

  • My earliest powerful experience with the Book of Mormon was when I was 16. At the time, I was living in a place where I experienced a lot of opposition for being a Mormon. I remember someone asking me, “Why do they hate you so much?”. I didn’t know the answer, but as I was reading the Book of Mormon, I realized that I knew it was true and that was all that mattered. That feeling carried me through that tough time and a lot of others. 🙂

    • High School was one of my first times actually praying about the Book of Mormon.

      It was during my Freshman year and we were studying it in Seminary.
