Abstract

In 1982, the phrase “Another Testament of Jesus Christ” was added as a subtitle to the Book of Mormon. Some may wonder what it means that the Book of Mormon is “Another Testament” and why this additional description is so important. This article shows how the Book of Mormon acts as another testament in its role as an additional record of God’s covenants, as a sign of God’s power, and as a volume of Holy Scripture.
