I don't think it takes any leap of faith to suppose that Joseph Smith wrote the Book of Mormon. It is the simplest explanation that is most consistent with what we see on the page and what is likely to have happened. What fits in no way is the story that ancient American Hebrews of the tribe of Manassah wrote the book in Reformed Egyptian. Show me any evidence outside of the text that squarely and unambiguously supports that claim and I will listen. We can skip to the part of there not being any such thing, because there is not.
