Advertising students hosted The Book of Mormon Experiment outside the Joseph Smith Building on Thursday, Sept. 21. Advertising professor Jeff Sheets organized the event, which invited community members to read and reflect on one page of the Book of Mormon.

Participants highlighted all references to Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father and wrote their reflections. Each participant also had their photo taken.

All pages of the Book of Mormon, with the accompanying photo and notes from the participant, were pinned up as a collage inside the Joseph Smith Building.

The initiative, designed to give people the opportunity to read the Book of Mormon, has traveled across the world, including the U.K., South Africa and Australia.
