book-mormon-projectA year ago, Jake Christensen, a member of the Church from Eagle, Idaho, decided he wanted to share a video with his friends on Facebook about the Book of Mormon.

He searched YouTube,, and even, but didn’t find a video that adequately explained what the Book of Mormon is. That’s when he decided to make one. He enlisted the help of two friends, Jacob Justice and Kyson Kidd, and the 3 BYU-Idaho students created the video “What is the Book of Mormon?” They set up a Facebook page to give progress reports and get people excited to share the video, which was released on New Year’s Day 2015.

They hope that the video will impact Latter-day Saints as well as those who are not LDS. They feel that the reason more people have not read the Book of Mormon is because they do not understand what it is. “If people could really understand what the Book of Mormon is, they would cherish that book like their lives depended on it,” Christensen said.

The video below is an explanation of the project.
