The final prophet in the Book of Mormon is Moroni, the son of Mormon who had abridged all the Nephite records into the singular volume of gold plates.
He then entrusted the sacred record to his son, Moroni, who was the last known prophet of that era. Moroni lived to see the terrible wars that destroyed his people, including his father. In about 421 AD, Moroni wrote a few last words on the gold plates, then was commanded to bury them under a rock on a hill. God promised him that they would be brought forth by the power of God in the latter-days for the benefit of mankind, to provide—along with the Bible—another testament of Jesus Christ.
In the very last chapter of the book, Moroni instructs his future readers in how to find out if these records (the Book of Mormon) are true. He says:
“…I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.”
Since it was first published in 1830, millions of people have read the Book of Mormon, and taken “Moroni’s Challenge” to pray about it’s truthfulness. We invite all sincere seekers of Christ to do the same thing. We testify that in this you will not be disappointed, and you can gain a testimony of its truth for yourself.
