Ezra Taft Benson on the Book of Mormon

From Ezra Taft Benson, "The Book of Mormon--The Keystone of Our Religion," Ensign (November 1986): 7.

I feel certain that if in our homes, parents will read from the Book of Mormon prayerfully and regularly, both by themselves and with their children, the spirit of that great book will come to permeate their homes and all who dwell therein. The spirit of reverence will increase; mutual respect and consideration for each other will grow. The spirit of contention will depart. Parents will counsel with their children in greater love and wisdom. Children will be more responsive and submissive to the counsel of their parents. Righteousness will increase. Faith, hope and charity--the pure love of Christ will abound in our homes and lives, bringing in their wake peace, joy and happiness.
