The Book of Mormon musical has generated a lot of attention since its premiere in 2011. However, the Broadway play has little to do with the Book of Mormon’s contents, plots, origins, or the principles it teaches. The Book of Mormon itself refers to music dozens of times. People in the Book of Mormon sang and played instruments in contexts of worshipping, fighting, celebrating, and praising. The Book of Mormon’s use of music can help readers connect to God, learn about expressing appropriate thanks to God, and remember the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
