Smith said that the last prophet to contribute to the book, a man named Moroni, buried it in Cumorah hill in present-day New York, then returned to earth in as an angel, revealing the location of the plates to Smith, and instructing him to translate it into English for use in the restoration of Christ's true church in the latter days. Critics claim that it was fabricated by Smith, drawing on material and ideas from contemporary 19th-century works rather than translating an ancient record.
The Book of Mormon has a number of original and distinctive doctrinal discussions on subjects such as the fall of Adam and Eve, the nature of the Atonement, eschatology, redemption from physical and spiritual death, and the organization of the latter-day church.
The pivotal event of the book is an appearance of Jesus Christ in the Americas shortly after his resurrection. The Book of Mormon is the earliest of the unique writings of the Latter Day Saint movement, the denominations of which typically regard the text primarily as scripture, and secondarily as a historical record of God's dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas.
The Book of Mormon is divided into smaller books, titled after the individuals named as primary authors and, in most versions, divided into chapters and verses.
It is written in English very similar to the Early Modern English linguistic style of the King James Version of the Bible, and has since been fully or partially translated into languages.
As of , more than million copies of the Book of Mormon have been published. According to Joseph Smith, he was seventeen years of age when an angel of God named Moroni appeared to him and said that a collection of ancient writings was buried in a nearby hill in present-day Wayne County, New York, engraved on golden plates by ancient prophets.
The writings were said to describe a people whom God had led from Jerusalem to the Western hemisphere years before Jesus' birth. According to the narrative, Moroni was the last prophet among these people and had buried the record, which God had promised to bring forth in the latter days. Smith stated that this vision occurred on the evening of September 21, and that on the following day, via divine guidance, he located the burial location of the plates on this hill; was instructed by Moroni to meet him at the same hill on September 22 of the following year to receive further instructions; and that, in four years from this date, the time would arrive for "bringing them forth", i.

Smith's description of these events recounts that he was allowed to take the plates on September 22, , exactly four years from that date, and was directed to translate them into English. Accounts vary of the way in which Smith dictated the Book of Mormon.
Smith himself implied that he read the plates directly using spectacles prepared for the purpose of translating. Other accounts variously state that he used one or more seer stones placed in a top hat. Additionally, the plates were not always present during the translating process and, when present, they were always covered up.
Smith's first published description of the plates said that the plates "had the appearance of gold". They were described by Martin Harris, one of Smith's early scribes, as "fastened together in the shape of a book by wires. A portion of the text on the plates was also "sealed" according to his account, so its content was not included in the Book of Mormon. In addition to Smith's account regarding the plates, eleven others stated that they saw the golden plates and, in some cases, handled them.
These statements have been published in most editions of the Book of Mormon. Smith enlisted his neighbor Martin Harris as a scribe during his initial work on the text.
Harris later mortgaged his farm to underwrite the printing of the Book of Mormon. Aaron, after some hardships, makes his way to the land Nephi, where he also is successful in converting the chief King and many of his people. All the Lamanite converts assemble, but the unconverted Lamanites, furious with the indoctrination campaign that the Nephite missionaries were undertaking, wage a war on the Nephites and the Lamanite converts.
The sons of Mosiah lead their converts out of the land of Nephi, and they are given a city in Nephite territory, Jershon, to settle. The Nephites devise a new form of government comprised of judges, subsidiary judges and a chief judge. Without much delay, there is insurrection, and some factions try to overthrow the government and reestablish a king. The church begins to decline, so Alma gives up his position as chief judge to be a full time minister for the church.
He goes to many different Nephite cities, preaches to them, and sets the church in order. The sons of Mosiah return to Zarahemla with their Lamanite converts, and they help Alma in additional local preaching labors. Despite all the efforts, many Nephites become disaffected, dissent, and join the Lamanites.
Alma passes on his responsibilities to his son Helaman. The first major attack was initiated by the Zoramites, a group that Alma and his companions has preached to earlier. They had dissented and joined the Lamanites, and came to war against the Nephites, led by a warrior named Zerahemnah.
The Nephite troops are led by a man named Moroni, who is able to inspire the Nephites to fight for the cause of liberty and justice. The Nephites engage all their powers to defend themselves, with Moroni defending the east and Helaman defending the west.
All the while, rebellion, dissent, corruption, and civil unrest plagues the Nephite nation. The Nephite society as a whole begins to decline, and large portions of Nephite territory are lost to Lamanite invaders. At length, a Lamanite prophet, Samuel, comes among the Nephites and prophesies of the rapidly approaching arrival of Jesus Christ. He also warns that unless the people repent, they will be destroyed.

Samuel is rejected and little heed is given to his words. Gadianton forces multiply, and engage in guerilla strikes on the Nephites, expanding their power and undermining the righteous.
Messianic Ministry In fulfillment of prophesy, Jesus Christ, the son of God, resurrected from the dead, descends out of heaven and visits the surviving Nephites after a gigantic storm ravages the land, killing many people. Jesus selects twelve disciples, organizes a priesthood, instructs the people on baptism, and teaches them many similar things he taught during his mortal ministry in the Holy Land. Jesus blesses children, heals the sick, establishes his doctrines and ordinances, and gives people hope and assurance for salvation.
He emphasizes the importance of records and scriptures; he commands them to record the account of his visit, and comments on many other scriptures that they are familiar with.
After a visit of three days, he ascends back into heaven, occasionally returning to minister privately. After years of this Zion, corruption begins to creep into the society again.
