A Christmas Gift

This Christmas season, we wish to give you the most precious gift that we have ever received: a knowledge that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God and that He has restored His Church so that we may know Him and receive all of the blessings which He wishes to give us. You may also know these things through the teachings of the prophets of the Book of Mormon.
The Book of Mormon is true. It stands with the Holy Bible as a witness that Jesus Christ is our Savior and the Son of God. Through it, you will come to know Jesus in a way you have never imagined. The Book of Mormon invites us all to ‘arise and come forth unto [Him] that [we] . . . may feel the prints of the nails in [His] hands and in [His] feet, that [we] may know . . . that [He] is the God of the whole earth, and [has] been slain for the sins of the world’ (3 Nephi 11:14, p. 428). Although we have not seen Jesus, in a way we have felt the prints of the nails in His hands and feet as we have read the Book of Mormon, and we know that He is the God of the whole earth.

But we hope that you will not simply rely on our word. We invite you to read the Book of Mormon to test us. And we promise that if you will read it, ponder its teachings, and ‘ask God . . . in the name of Christ if [it is true]’ (Moroni 10:4, p. 529), God will answer your prayer.

Merry Christmas!

May The Book of Mormon bring you nearer to Jesus, whose birth we celebrate.
