Two Books

 

There will be two versions of the Book of Mormon that we will be using on this website. The most common one is from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS or the Mormons). Since their headquarters are in Salt Lake City, Utah, we will call their edition the Utah edition or version. 

 

With Independence, MO as their headquarters, the Community of Christ Church (formerly known as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints or RLDS) also has a version of the Book of Mormon. Referred to historically as the 1908 Authorized Edition, this copy shall serve in our study. Since I am neither part of the LDS or Community Christ churches, my 1908 copy comes from another source within the Restoration Movement. However, I do use the LDS Book of Mormon.
