Abstract

The Book of Mormon is unique because Jesus Christ initiated and supervised its production. It was written under divine guidance by prophets specifically for the last days. The gold plates were in the custody of an angel. The translation was conducted by an unlearned man and completed in approximately sixty days. The Lord proclaimed its divinity and truthfulness.
