Trivia: Who wrote the Book of Mormon??

I'd like John Whitmer to write history
AbsurdityBoring Stuff 47:1-4

1 Behold, it is expedient in me that my servant John should write and keep a regular history, and assist you, my servant Joseph, in transcribing all things which shall be given you, until he is called to further duties.

I [God] would like John [Whitmer] to write history.

2 Again, verily I say unto you that he can also lift up his voice in meetings, whenever it shall be expedient.

He can also talk at meetings.

3 And again, I say unto you that it shall be appointed unto him to keep the church record and history continually; for Oliver Cowdery I have appointed to another office.

Oliver Cowdery used to write the history,

but I've given him other duties.

4 Wherefore, it shall be given him, inasmuch as he is faithful, by the Comforter, to write these things. Even so. Amen.
