U.S. Senator authors new book addressing the authenticity of The Book of Mormon

Sen. Bob Bennett knows that The Book of Mormon is true, and now he wants others to read how he came to that conclusion in a new book he has written.

...In the book, Leap of Faith , Bennett applies four forgery tests to determine whether the book is a fake, according to the news release.

Deseret Book said Bennett decided to write the book after becoming upset with the "shallow" media coverage of The Book of Mormon leading up to the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
