When was “Another Testament of Jesus Christ” added to the title of the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ

The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ

The subtitle ‘Another Testament of Jesus Christ’ was added in 1982. In General Conference 1986 President Ezra Taft Benson explained that it was added to aid in focusing the efforts of the church to more fully utilize the Book of Mormon in general, and specifically to utilize it in testifying of Christ.

  1. Hi, Mike. I was trying to find the original source for the statement above, but have been unable to do so. I checked President Benson’s talks in both the April and the October 1986 General Conference sessions. The closest that I could come up with was this statement from, “The Book of Mormon—Keystone of Our Religion,” saying: “It is indeed another testament or witness of Jesus. This is one of the reasons why we have recently added the words “Another Testament of Jesus Christ” to the title of the Book of Mormon.” Can you please direct me to the source for the statement above? Many thanks!
