Experience the Book of Mormon at BMC 2018

On Saturday, April 7, 2018 perhaps the finest Book of Mormon Conference ever produced will be held at the Utah Valley Convention Center on Center Street in Provo, Utah. Approximately 500 attendees will use all five senses to engage the Nephite sacred text in profound new ways at an event entitled "Experience the Book of Mormon." As with all images on this blog, click to enlarge.

At the conference, the winners of the BMC 2018 art contest will be announced and some of their pieces will be on display. The Father Lehi and Mother Sariah Award this year will be given to Emeritus General Authority Elder Clate W. and Sister Carol Mask. Both served in the Central American Mission. After a career in CES, they presided over the Spain Barcelona Mission, served in the Second Quorum of Seventy, and presided over the Guatemala City Temple 2009 - 2012 when it was among the busiest in the Church.

Elder and Sister Mask have been life-long students and teachers of the Book of Mormon as well as caring ministers to the posterity of Lehi and Sariah.

Every wonder what Lehi's tent in the Arabian wilderness was like? You will have the chance to go inside a genuine Bedouin goat hair tent from the Middle East that is probably very similar to the one Lehi would have used.

Curious about the new videos on the Book of Mormon the Church will be releasing soon? Rob Jex who is part of the Church production team will give us all a sneak preview.

What would happen if a world-class comic book artist drew a graphic novel edition of the Book of Mormon? Come find out.

Want to own an 1830 edition but don't have the $100k or more it would take to purchase one from a rare book dealer? You can take home a copy of the remarkable replica "Palmyra Edition" that for most of us is a very good approximation of the original.

Come be fed temporally and spiritually. Is there a better way to spend the Saturday after General Conference than immersed in the Book of Mormon?
