The Book of Mormon - Key to Conversion

By Glenn L. Pearson

Synopsis: This is a very short, little book (64 pages) that explains how getting someone to gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon overcomes any and all objections to believing the Gospel.

Strong Points: For such a tiny little book, this one sure packs a good punch. It is well thought-out and well presented. It lays out the premise of the book early on in a clear and concise way. The author then proceeds to show examples of how the principle works by using some of the most prickly objections to the Church: plural marriage, blacks and the priesthood, etc. This book should be standard reading for those preparing for a mission.

Weak Points: This book is quite old and out of print (last printing in 1967).

Interesting: 4.5/5

Must Read: 4/5

Overall: 4.5/5

Selected Quote: "The formula consists of the following four steps: 1. Recognize the objection. 2. Give [the] answer from modern revelation. 3. Explain that the correctness of the answer depends on whether or not we have modern prophets and modern revelation. 4. Explain that whether or not we have modern prophets and modern revelation depends on whether or not the Book of Mormon is true. Hence, the only problem the investigator has to solve for himself is whether or not the Book of Mormon is true." (p. 7-8).
