    I see value in a fictional book which teaches spiritual messages. However, if the Book of Mormon is that book, I now face two unique challenges:

    (1) Since Church Prophet-Presidents speak of it as the most true book, how should I modify my view of who prophets are, what they know, and what modern revelation means?

    (2) Where is the transition from fiction into non-fiction? For example, does a fictional Moroni visit Joseph Smith with instructions about his mission? Or perhaps Moroni is non-fictional, having written fictional stories on non-fictional Plates? Or perhaps Mormon and Moroni are non-fictional, and together they wrote spiritual messages within fictional wonderings? Perhaps Mormon observed real events within his neighborhood-community, and then enlarged them to hemispherical scale to press greater value in the minds of readers? I am open to any of these examples or any in the gaps between. I simply want to know where fiction transitions to non-fiction, or vice versa.
