The purpose of the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants is to bless lives and help mankind to resist the powers of Satan. The Book of Mormon does not detract from the value of the Bible, but supports and sustains its truthfulness. The Book of Mormon is the keystone of the Church and has the power to reveal false doctrines, help people overcome temptations, and bring individuals closer to God than any other book.
