Surveys letters, journals and other early Church historical writings concerning the missionary use of Book of Mormon passages from the beginning of its translation until its publication and the organization of the Church. By April, 1830, early members of the Church were instructed from and proselytized with passages from the Book of Mormon. Elements of this missionary work included written letters from Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery, angelic visitations and testimonies, handwritten excerpts from the translation, manuscripts and proof sheets from the printing, and finally the first edition of the Book of Mormon.
