The Book of Mormon: Selections Annotated & Explained explores this epic that is read by more than twelve million members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) as the keystone of their faith. Probing the principal themes and historical foundation of this narrative, Jana Riess focuses on key selections that offer insight into contemporary Mormon beliefs and scriptural emphases, such as the atonement of Christ, the nature of human freedom, the purpose of baptism, and the need for repentance from sin. She clarifies the religious, political, and historical events that take place in the ancient communities of the Book of Mormon and their underlying contemporary teachings that serve as the framework for spiritual practices that lie at the core of Mormon life.
