The top 10 cult books
2. The Book Of Mormon by Joseph Smith
The book that Mark Twain disparaged is nigh on unreadable. As Twain also pointed out, if Smith had left out his favourite phrase “And it came to pass” this 500-page bible “would only have been a pamphlet”. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth reading, however. Its incredible tales of stone-tablets, non-existent languages, warring tribes in early America and, oddest of all, elephants, would seem completely beyond belief - if it weren’t for the fact that so many millions take them as gospel.
