This month, as a mission, we have been studying the importance of the Book of Mormon in conversion. In my own limited experience in the mission field, I can tell you that the Book of Mormon has been the most effective tool in bringing investigators to baptism. With one of our recent baptismal candidates, we got him reading the Book of Mormon within the first week. This coupled with excellent MEMBER missionary work led to him being baptized. One of our investigators who we are working with now has begun reading it, and we can see how his heart has been softened just in the short time we've been meeting with him. He told us that he has heard a lot of negative comments about the Book of Mormon in his life. But now that he's started reading it, he can see that much of the rumors regarding it were, in his words, "only speculation." When investigators gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon, everything else falls into place.
