Amazon will offer the “Book of Mormon” ebook version for $11.99 beginning next month.
Amazon is releasing the book online in the United States, Canada and Mexico starting July 1.
The price will be a “slightly higher” than the paperback version that will be available from Amazon.com and Apple’s App Store.
The book will be printed by Random House.
The original version of the book sold for $15.99 in 2014.
Amazon says that this is the first time the company will offer an ebook version.
“Our goal with the Book of the Mormon is to help readers better understand and share their experiences of the Book,” the company said in a statement.
The first book in the Book is set in a world of Nephi and Joseph Smith and was published in 1830.
“This is a classic text and should be accessible to everyone, regardless of whether they are a new convert or an expert in Mormon history,” Amazon said.
“It is an invaluable resource for people who want to deepen their understanding of the Bible or other biblical texts, and for anyone interested in the history of the church.”
The company also said that the ebook edition is not available in its other U.S. markets.
“We hope this will help our customers and friends across the country find the best deal on the Book, so they can share their joy and delight with others,” the statement said.
Amazon will not be selling the book on its Kindle Fire devices or its Kindle app.
Amazon has said that it has no plans to release the book in its current format.
Amazon was also set to release a free version of its Kindle Bookstore app, called Kindle Unlimited, in January.
The app was set to launch in January, but Amazon has yet to announce when the app will be released.
The company has said it would release an ebook edition of “The Book” as soon as the book is available.
