Here is an audio edition of the sacred text of the Latter-Day Saint movement that followers believe contains the writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately 2200 B.C. to A.D. 421. A fascinating listen for religious scholars and denominational adherents alike.

What disappointed you about The Book of Mormon?

Only the misinformation. Should say: Translated by Joseph Smith, not written by Joseph Smith.
Released by: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, not Church of the Latter-day Saints.

The recording is flawed and does not due justice to the Written Word.

What other book might you compare The Book of Mormon to and why?

The Holy Bible. History as recorded by various prophets throughout time.

What didn’t you like about Sean Crisden’s performance?

Lack of emotion, and the constant repeating of chapter and verse, for every verse.
A very bland performance.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Book of Mormon?

n/a

Any additional comments?
