The Book of Mormon is a volume of scripture comparable to the Bible It is a record of God s dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas and contains as does the Bible the fullness of the everlasting gospel br br The book was written by many ancient prophets by the spirit of prophecy and revelation Their words written on gold plates were quoted and abridged by a prophet historian named Mormon The record gives an account of two great civilizations One came from Jerusalem in B C and afterward separated into two nations known as the Nephites and the Lamanites The other came much earlier when the Lord confounded the tongues at the Tower of Babel This group is known as the Jaredites After thousands of years all were destroyed except the Lamanites and they are among the ancestors of the American Indians br br The crowning event recorded in the Book of Mormon is the personal ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ among the Nephites soon after his resurrection It puts forth the doctrines of the gospel outlines the plan of salvation and tells men what they must do to gain peace in this life and eternal salvation in the life to come br br After Mormon completed his writings he delivered the account to his son Moroni who added a few words of his own and hid up the plates in the hill Cumorah On September the same Moroni then a glorified resurrected being appeared to the Prophet Joseph Smith and instructed him relative to the ancient record and its destined translation into the English language br br In due course the plates were delivered to Joseph Smith who translated them by the gift and power of God The record is now published in many languages as a new and additional witness that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God and that all who will come unto him and obey the laws and ordinances of his gospel may be saved br br Concerning this record the Prophet Joseph Smith said I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth and the keystone of our religion and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts than by any other book br br In addition to Joseph Smith the Lord provided for eleven others to see the gold plates for themselves and to be special witnesses of the truth and divinity of the Book of Mormon Their written testimonies are included herewith as The Testimony of Three Witnesses and The Testimony of Eight Witnesses br br We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon to ponder in their hearts the message it contains and the to ask God the Eternal Father in the name of Christ if the book is true Those who pursue this course and ask in faith will gain a testimony of its truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost See Moroni br, The New International Version NIV is a completely original translation of the Bible developed by more than one hundred scholars working from the best available Hebrew Aramaic and Greek texts br br The initial vision for the project was provided by a single individual an engineer working with General Electric in Seattle by the name of Howard Long Long was a lifelong devotee of the King James Version but when he shared it with his friends he was distressed to find that it just didn t connect Long saw the need for a translation that captured the truths he loved in the language that his contemporaries spoke br br For years Long and a growing group of like minded supporters drove this idea The passion of one man became the passion of a church and ultimately the passion of a whole group of denominations And finally in after several years of preparatory study a trans denominational and international group of scholars met in Palos Heights Illinois and agreed to begin work on the project determining to not simply adapt an existing English version of the Bible but to start from scratch with the best available manuscripts in the original languages Their conclusion was endorsed by a large number of church leaders who met in Chicago in br br A self governing body of fifteen biblical scholars the Committee on Bible Translation CBT was formed and charged with responsibility for the version and in the New York Bible Society which subsequently became the International Bible Society and then Biblica generously undertook the financial sponsorship of the project The translation of each book was assigned to translation teams each made up of two lead translators two translation consultants and a stylistic consultant where necessary The initial translations produced by these teams were carefully scrutinized and revised by intermediate editorial committees of five biblical scholars to check them against the source texts and assess them for comprehensibility Each edited text was then submitted to a general committee of eight to twelve members before being distributed to selected outside critics and to all members of the CBT in preparation for a final review Samples of the translation were tested for clarity and ease of reading with pastors students scholars and lay people across the full breadth of the intended audience Perhaps no other translation has undergone a more thorough process of review and revision From the very start the NIV sought to bring modern Bible readers as close as possible to the experience of the very first Bible readers providing the best possible blend of transparency to the original documents and comprehension of the original meaning in every verse With this clarity of focus however came the realization that the work of translating the NIV would never be truly complete As new discoveries were made about the biblical world and its languages and as the norms of English usage developed and changed over time the NIV would also need to change to hold true to its original vision br br And so in the original NIV charter provision was made not just to issue periodic updates to the text but also to create a mechanism for constant monitoring of changes in biblical scholarship and English usage The CBT was charged to meet every year to review maintain and strengthen the NIV s ability to accurately and faithfully render God s unchanging Word in modern English, The Dhammapada P li Prakrit Dhammapada Sanskrit Dharmapada is a collection of sayings of the Buddha in verse form and one of the most widely read and best known Buddhist scriptures The original version of the Dhammapada is in the Khuddaka Nikaya a division of the Pali Canon of Theravada Buddhism br The Buddhist scholar and commentator Buddhaghosa explains that each saying recorded in the collection was made on a different occasion in response to a unique situation that had arisen in the life of the Buddha and his monastic community His commentary the Dhammapada Atthakatha presents the details of these events and is a rich source of legend for the life and times of the Buddha, Now the complete ESV Bible comes alive in audio format The new em ESV em em Hear the Word
