The Book of Mormon is a volume of holy scripture comparable to the Bible and is a record of God's dealings with His chosen people in the New World. The main purpose of the Book of Mormon is "to the convincing of Jew and Gentile that JESUS is the CHRIST, the ETERNAL GOD, manifesting himself unto all nations." (Book of Mormon Title Page) It was written by ancient American prophets for our day (Mormon 8:35) and is an American testament of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Book of Mormon Month - Day 6: Who Wrote the Book of Mormon? #bookofmormon
You're now 6 Days into the challenge. Almost a whole week! Don't give up now!
Who Wrote the Book of Mormon?
Ancient prophets, historians, and leaders engraved their testimonies and
history on golden plates. Later, the Prophet Joseph Smith, by the gift
and power of God, translated an abridgment of those original plates. See how it all came together over centuries of pre-Columbian American civilization.
