I’m so pleased to announce this new resource! It’s a nonprofit organization, called Book of Mormon Central. It exists independently of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The organization affirms the Book of Mormon’s truthfulness and answers questions about it, typically asked by Millennials. My husband’s cousin, Lynne Hilton Wilson, a co-founder, is a scholar of the Book of Mormon and the Bible, having a PhD in Theology and American History. She has taught at the CES Institute that serves students who attend Stanford U. She tells the story of Book of Mormon Central’s founding in the video above.
