Book Of Mormon In New York Times Crossword!

In yesterday’s (5/21/08) New York Times crossword, the clue for 18-across was “Book of Mormon book,” four letters.  That would make three possible answers.  Which was it?

This is especially exciting because about a million people do this crossword each day, and a Wednesday puzzle is supposed to be relatively easy; or, at least, the answers shouldn’t be too obscure.  Thus, the editors at the Times feel that the Book of Mormon is mainstream enough that its global readers will understand the clue and either know the answer or be able to find it out quickly. 

And so the influence of this amazing work grows…

The answer was “Omni,” by the way.
