Video: Elder Renlund on the ‘profound miracle’ of the Book of Mormon

‘It is a profound miracle in my life, that I have come to know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God,’ Elder Dale G. Renlund says

Miracles both broad and specific mark the path of the Book of Mormon as it progressed from its initial translation and printing of 5,000 copies to its current publishing in 113 languages and distribution of 200 million copies. 

Elder Dale G. Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles recently spoke about some of those miracles in a Church News interview. 

“It is a miracle that it got published in the first place. It is a miracle that it came forth. It is a miracle that it was accepted, and by so many,” he said. “But it is a profound miracle in my life, that I have come to know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God.”

Elder Renlund talked about the milestone of published copies of the Book of Mormon and why it is important for each individual to come closer to the Savior through its teachings in a new video titled “200 Million Copies.”
