THE CHALLENGE

At the very end of the Book of Mormon, the prophet Moroni issues a call-to-action to every earnest seeker of truth:

Moroni 10:3-5

Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.

And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.

And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.

Does that sound like a challenge the Devil would make? Of course not. Since the time of Adam, God has provided truth-seekers with the answers they sought, and He promises to do the same for me and you!

To make your journey easier, I have provided many footnotes in the chapters of this book. I also have some more recommendations for further study in the next section. If you have questions or would simply like more information about something, and would like to chat with a missionary online, or over the telephone, visit mormon.org/chat.
