John Welch considers what records were brought together to form the book of Ether and examines which parts of the book might have been composed by Moroni. He looks for paraphrases included in the book and seeks to discover what influenced Moroni's rendition of the Jaredite story. He concludes that stating comprehensively who wrote the book of Ether is no simple matter.
