“[The] Book of Mormon as an ancient text mediated through the mind of Joseph Smith…The prophet is an active participant in revelation, conceptualizing and verbalizing God’s message in a framework of thought meaningful to the people…[Smith’s] revelatory experiences naturally assumed the world view arising from his culture.”

~Blake Ostler, Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought – Spring 1987, Volume 20, no. 1, pages 66, 79, 100, 107-114, ‘The Book of Mormon as a Modern Expansion of an Ancient Source’~
