The Title Page of the Book of Mormon refers to its primary records as abridgments. An abridgment is a shortened version of a text, which means that the abridgments found in the Book of Mormon are only summaries of larger recorded histories. Exploring how the Book of Mormon’s various source texts contribute to its message about Christ can be intellectually enlightening, spiritually satisfying, and faith promoting.
