The Book of Mormon is a volume of holy scripture which gives an account of God’s dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the American continent. It was translated by the power of God through a living prophet. It contains the words of God given to ancient prophets, just as the Bible does. These prophets taught the people of the American continent the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the only way to eternal life. One of the main events in The Book of Mormon gives an account of Jesus Christ’s visit to the Americas after His resurrection.
