If you Saw the Book of Mormon Musical You Should Really Read the Book

Here is a wonderful new video just released by Mormon Messages -- Book of Mormon: An Introduction.   It is narrated by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - also referred to by some as the Mormon Church.

As many of you are probably aware, there is currently a fairly controversial musical play on Broadway, called The Book of Mormon Musical.



This play is receiving many accolades by the entertainment industry, and therefore has brought much attention to not only the LDS Church, but also the Book of Mormon.

Prior to the opening of the play, The Book of Mormon Musical, the LDS Church released this official statement on the LDS Newsroom:


"In response to news media requests, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has issued the following statement regarding the Broadway musical entitled TheBook of Mormon:
The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening, but the Book of Mormon as a volume of scripture will change people's lives forever by bringing them closer to Christ."

I actually posted about this HERE and HERE.

I'm not interested in ever seeing this play.  I know enough about it to know it would be offensive to me. My only interest here is to make sure that those who may have seen  The Book of Mormon Musical  or heard about it and want to know what the actual Book of Mormon is really all about, can get accurate information.

I hope others will join me by sharing this video on Twitter, Facebook, etc...   In this way, those you know who may be interested in learning more about the Book of Mormon, won't ever come back to you and ask you WHY you didn't tell them about it yourself?   There's way to much misinformation out there about what we believe as Mormons.  With good use of Social Media, we can take opportunities to make sure at least the people we come in contact with, online, have available to them that which is credible.
