They Were the Talk of the Town

During the late 1800’s, a New York Times article raved about what connection to the LDS church?

a.      The number of female actresses on Broadway from Utah

b.      Polygamy

c.       Mormon missionaries in New York City

d.      A Mormon baseball player signs with the Yankees

Yesterday’s answer:

(D)   A Book of Mormon

Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy wrote about the Church and may have read the Book of Mormon. His copy of the Book of Mormon resides in the Tolstoy museum in Chechnya. Of the Church he wrote: “If Mormonism is able to endure, unmodified, until it reaches the third and fourth generation, it is destined to become the greatest power the world has ever known.”
