I know without doubt that the content of the Book of Mormon was translated by the gift and power of God. What that means to me is that God, before whom all is present (meaning ALL past, EVERYTHING present and ALL future events, needs and eventualities are simultaneously available to an Eternal Being working with us in a temporal existence) tailored the content "to the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that Jesus is the Christ". No mortal being could even imagine producing a document that would be relevant to a woman reading it in the 1870s and a young man reading it in the 2020s where the Holy Ghost could employ it to enter the heart and mind of all to testify of the Father and the Son. A New York frontier young man in the late 1820s of meager education, of himself. could not concoct, copy or assemble anything as enduring and effective as what is contained in the Book of Mormon in whatever language it is presented. What is contained in the Book of Mormon is what Jesus Christ wants and what the Holy Ghost employs to bring about its purpose.
