Making our scripture study meaningful can be difficult at times, but there are lots of resources to help us. For me, one of the best things I’ve done to improve my scripture study is to use different study techniques. Here are some tools for improving scripture study.
I’ve written several books and articles about the Book of Mormon. My newest book is Voices in the Book of Mormon. Learn more about it here.
One of the most influential books in recent years is Grant Hardy’s Understanding the Book of Mormon. Highly recommended!
In the 1990s and 2000s FARMS published a series of books that were really helpful in learning about the latest Book of Mormon research. I still find these to be fascinating summaries and definitely recommend them, especially since they are available online for free: Re-Exploring the Book of Mormon and Pressing Forward with the Book of Mormon. I also love the book, Book of Mormon Authorship Revisited.
If you’re looking for a study version of the Book of Mormon, I recommend The Annotated Book of Mormon, by Grant Hardy.
If you’re looking for a study guide for children, I recommend the Book of Mormon Study guide: Diagrams, Doodles, & Insights, by Shannon Foster. It’s been so helpful to motivate my 10-year-old daughter to study The Book of Mormon.
