Besides Joseph Smith, few people were as involved in the bringing forth of the Book of Mormon as Oliver Cowdery. He was Joseph's most prolific scribe, one of the three witnesses, and oversaw the printing process, for which he re-copied the entire Book of Mormon by hand. Oliver remained involved in the founding events of the Church and became one of the first missionaries to take the Book of Mormon to the Lamanites. His dedication and service deserves to be appreciated by all who to cherish the Book of Mormon.
