“It’s way tight,” said spokesperson LeGrand Frost. “Now youngsters can read the scriptures in the language they understand which is totes legit… or something.”
Since its first publication in 1830, The Book of Mormon has been translated into at least 80 languages. While all the translations have attempted to stay true to the formal structure of the original manuscript, the Millennials’ Edition, makes no such attempt.
Besides helping Millennials, Frost also stated that the Millennials’ Edition is intended to help parents familiarize themselves with the language of their children.
The Book of Mormon Millennials’ Edition is now available on the LDS scriptures app.
