I read Oliver Cowdery’s recollection about the translation process. What a wonderful time to be around. What a wonderful event to experience. Then, I did some research. I found this article, which is referred to often (Just click on the link if you want to go there.): How Long Did It Take to Translate the Book of Mormon? It is fascinating to realize how the Book of Mormon was basically totally translated in about 63 working days! It must have been translated by the power of God.
