Nephi prophesied that after the Book of Mormon would come forth unto the Gentiles, there would be many who would believe the “words which are written.” For many early Church members, the Book of Mormon was a key factor in their conversion, and through the inspired teachings of modern prophets, it now plays an unprecedented role in missionary work through the world. It functions not only as a sign of the restoration, but as a guide to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. President Ezra Taft Benson taught that the “time is long overdue for a massive flooding of the earth with the Book of Mormon.” This statement is more relevant today than ever, for modern technology is providing an ever-increasing capacity to share this life-changing scripture with the world.
