These statistical results provide striking support for the Book of Mormon’s own claims about its authorship. In order to fabricate the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith would have needed the ability to create distinct fictional voices, and a talent beyond some of the greatest novelists of his time (Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Mark Twain, and James Fenimore Cooper).
