Abstract

The translation of the Book of Mormon required the work of Joseph Smith in conjunction with the inspiration of the Holy Ghost. It was a work consisting of “considerable spiritual, intellectual, and physical labor.” Those who desire to receive the benefits of the Book of Mormon must also set forth “considerable spiritual, intellectual, and physical labor.”
