Reference in Daredevil: Redemption #5 to
The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ

The Book of Mormon is mentioned in Daredevil comic book
Above: In court, defense attorney Matt Murdock (Daredevil) asks his innocent client, Joel Flood, about reading the the Holy Bible, The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ, and the Koran.

Watching the court proceedings are Howard Gideon (the father of the victim, left) and the prosecuting attorney (right). Howard Gideon, a devout but very violent Southern Baptist, is the man who actually murdered his son, and later in this story he is convicted of the crime.

Cover of Daredevil: Redemption #5

Daredevil: Redemption #5, page 19, Matt Murdock asks his client about his Book of Mormon Dialogue from this scene, in which attorney Matt Murdock (who is secretly Daredevil, but appears here as a civilian) questions his client, Joel Flood, who has been accused of a murder he did not commit:

MATT MURDOCK: Okay now, Joel, we have heard evidence here that has characterized you as a Satanist. A devil-worshipper. Is that a true representation of your spiritual beliefs?

JOEL FLOOD: No, sir. I'm interested in all kinds of religions. Buddhism, Wicca.

MATT MURDOCK: And what is Wicca, Joel?

JOEL FLOOD: It's a form of white magic. It's really about living in harmony with nature.

MATT MURDOCK: Now the State has presented all kinds of items here. They've made quite a deal about this book, The Satanic Bible.

JOEL FLOOD: Yeah, I read that. It seems kind of arrogant and selfish.

MATT MURDOCK: So why did you read it?

JOEL FLOOD: Curiosity. Same as with all the other stuff.

MATT MURDOCK: There's a copy of the Holy Bible here too, the Book of Mormon, the Koran. Are you a follower of any of these religions?

JOEL FLOOD: Not really. I just like to study different beliefs. Take a little from here and there.

MATT MURDOCK: Do you believe in human sacrifice?

JOEL FLOOD: No. That's just ridiculous.

MATT MURDOCK: Do you kill Bradley Gideon?

JOEL FLOOD: No. No, I did not.
