It might come as no surprise that there actually is A Book of Mormons. Written and compiled by Latter-day Saints Richard S. Van Wagoner and Steven C. Walker, the book was published by Signature Books in 1982. Donny and Marie are not in it, but 78 other “pivotal personalities” important to Mormonism are. From Elijah Abel to Zina D. H. Young, Van Wagoner and Walker “make accessible those elusive moments, those highlights of the lives of the people [they] met most and liked best in Mormon history” (ix).
Here are a few of the “highlights” the authors chose to include.
John M. Bernhisel: “In addition to the  sealings performed by Joseph Smith, and the seven wives married in Nauvoo, Bernhisel was sealed to eighty-three deceased women in the Salt Lake Endowment House in 1868, plus an additional twenty-three wives one year later.” (16)
Sam Brannan: “Mindful of Brannan’s financial success, President Brigham Young advised him, ‘If you want to continue to prosper, do not forget the Lord’s treasury, lest he forget you; for with the liberal, the Lord is liberal. And when you have settled with the treasury, I want you to remember that Brother Brigham has long been destitute of a home, and suffered heavy losses and incurred great expenses in searching out a location and planting the church in this place. He wants you to send him a present of twenty thousand dollars in gold dust, to help him in his labors.” (22)
Abraham H. Cannon: “1896. Despite the Wilford Woodruff Manifesto (1890), Cannon married Lillian Hamblin: ‘Father [President George Q. Cannon] also spoke to me about taking some good girl and raising up seed by her for my brother David…He told me to think the matter over, and speak to him later about it. Such a ceremony as this could be performed in Mexico, so Pres. Woodruff has said.’ With the assistance of Joseph F. Smith, Abraham married Lillian off the coast of California, and sired one child on behalf of his deceased brother.” (42-43)
Heber J. Grant: “During an 1883-1884 mission to the Moquis Indians in Arizona, Grant reported a vision in which he learned that he had been called to be an apostle because his natural father J.M. Grant, and the Prophet Joseph [Heber’s father by sealing], had requested it.” (Both men were deceased at this time. 101)
Anthony W. Ivins: “Officiator for Post-Manifesto Plural Marriages: 1897. Though a monogamist himself, Ivins was authorized by the First Presidency to perform plural marriage sealings, illegal under both U.S. and Mexican laws.” (133)
W.W. Phelps: “A Phelps editorial in the Star…was viewed by Missourians as an ‘invitation to free people of color to settle in Jackson County!’ Phelps tried to placate slaveholders in a special edition of the Star: ‘Our intention was not only to stop free people of color from emigrating to this state, but to prevent them from being admitted as members of the church.’” (206)
Orson Pratt: “When Pratt returned from a mission to Great Britain, he found that Church leaders had withdrawn his wife’s food allotment and were accusing her of adultery with John C. Bennett. She countered that Joseph Smith had proposed she become one of his ‘celestial wives,’ and that Brigham Young had urged her to say nothing, but ‘do as Joseph wished.’” (211)
Parley Pratt: “Orson [Parley’s brother], expelled from the temple, complained to Brigham Young about Parley’s alleged immorality…Orson was referring to Parley’s relations with Belinda Marden, to whom he had been secretly sealed on November 20, 1844. At the time, Belinda accompanied Pratt on a mission to New York, not even his wife, Mary Ann, was aware of the marriage. When Belinda gave birth to a son (1846), Mary Ann asked Belinda if the child were illegitimate. Told the truth, Mary Ann immediately severed her marital relationship with Pratt, though she did not divorce him until 1853, after coming to Utah.” (221)
Sidney Rigdon: “1842. May: Lasting difficulties were created between Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon when Rigdon’s daughter Nancy, her brother John, and her brother-in-law George W. Robinson testified that the Prophet [Joseph Smith] had proposed ‘spiritual marriage’ to her. Joseph publicly denied the accusations.” (236)
B.H. Roberts: “Roberts…refused to sign a Church ‘political manifesto’ which stipulated that before a general authority could seek political office he must ‘apply to the proper authorities and learn from them whether he can, consistently with the obligations already entered into with the Church upon assuming his office, take upon himself the added duties and labors and responsibilities of the new position.’…Roberts felt that the political manifesto constituted an infringement on basic civil liberties. He was suspended from ecclesiastical duties and given three weeks to recant…. He walked the streets all night, wrestling with the dilemma of sacrificing principle or being stripped of his Church blessings. Just hours before the deadline, he decided to sign and was accepted back into fellowship.” (243-244)
Joseph Fielding Smith: “He was often viewed as a ‘stern and unbending judge of righteousness,’ as suggested by his views on capital punishment; ‘There are sins which cannot be forgiven, except by the guilty person paying a price by the shedding of his blood. Capital punishment was to benefit the guilty to obtain a better resurrection when the sin had been one unto death.’” (305)
Annie Clark Tanner: “Six months later [after she became a plural wife], Tanner married a third wife. ‘I had not seen the third wife, but I did wonder wherein I lacked that so soon he should take another wife. Then I remembered the doctrine of the Trinity as taught by the Church – that if one wanted to attain the very pinnacle of glory in the next world there must be, at least, three wives.’” (350)
David Whitmer: “According to a March, 1929, revelation, Joseph Smith was given ‘a gift to translate the [Book of Mormon], and I have commanded him that he shall pretend to no other gift, for I will grant him no other’ (Book of Commandments 4:2). Whitmer opposed Joseph Smith as president of the Church, feeling that the Prophet’s only gift was to translate the Book of Mormon. The revelation was revised in the 1835 edition of the Doctrine and Covenants to read, ‘I have commanded that you should pretend to no other gift until my purpose is fulfilled in this; for I will grant unto you no other gift until it is finished.’” (389)
While sharing the Book of Mormon might be tricky for LDS missionaries, sharing A Book of Mormons with investigators would probably prove to be a great deal more difficult.
