The Holy Bible – any good translation can be used. Mormons typically use the King James Bible, and quotes in the text will come from that translation, but if you have a different translation it is okay.
The Book of Mormon – A companion volume to the Holy Bible which was translated by the Prophet Joseph Smith from ancient records. If you do not have a copy, you may get a free copy online at www.mormon.org by clicking on the button that reads “Seen on TV” and selecting Book of Mormon.
