The Book of Mormon
eBook (PDF), 300 Pages
This volume is intended to faithfully complete the revision of the Book of Mormon commenced in 1836 by Joseph Smith, Jr.He continued to make changes to the Book of Mormon for the next six years, and his assassination/martyrdom in 1844 ultimately prevented him from finishing this task.In November 1841, the year in which the fourth edition of the Book of Mormon was published, Joseph Smith, Jr. stated: "I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book." It is from this esoteric allusion to a keystone that the name Key of Joseph has been derived.The Book of Mormon was first published in 1830, and is in the Public Domain, as are all works published before 1923 in the USA. This work also includes several significant and well-marked changes to the text, making it a derivative work, and a great study resource.

Oct 30, 2009Just by looking at the preview, I see no difference whatsoever from the Authorized Edition used by the LDS Church, beyond there being no footnotes or chapter headings and parts of the text being bold and the introduction for why there is this 'translation'. I read each verse with my copy of the BOM on hand. So, might as well just stick to getting a free copy of the book and save yourself about $20.
Apr 24, 2009"Re: The copyright to this book is owned by the church..." Actually, the Book of Mormon was published in 1830, and has been in the public domain for about 100 years now. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints owns the copyright on the Chapter Headings and study aids included in their edition of the book, but not upon the text itself. This edition of the book has been edited, with all changes clearly marked, including every significant change (other than mere grammar or punctuation) that has been made in the text in prior editions of the book. If you are interested in studying the changes to the text between the 1830, 1837, 1841, 1879, and 1920 editions, and what meaning, if any, might be behind these changes, then this copy is a book you should look at. It doesn't indicate the origin of each change, but it does show you where they are by printing them in bold print, and it is a simple matter to look up the verse online and compare editions once a change has been...

Also, the proposed completions to Joseph's own editing, which are all indicated by italics, provide a clarity of the message of the book, particularly in Ether, that makes reading and understanding it much simpler.< Less

If you'd like a free copy, contact The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints in your area & ask the missionaries to either bring or send you a free copy. You may also request one via the Church's website. DO NOT pay for this copy. Also, this may be a questionable, altered version.
