18 – Whose Words Are Found in the Book of Mormon?


Although four families kept the main Nephite records (see chart 16), the words of many other authors are included in the Book of Mormon as well. The writings or speeches of Jesus Christ, Isaiah, Captain Moroni, and Zenos, for example, all add significantly to the Book of Mormon, even though these authors did not actually write upon the plates themselves. This chart adds to chart 16 some of the additional writers or speakers who are quoted in the Book of Mormon.
