Of course. Any book given by divine means is on equal footing with all other such books.
In response to a humble prayer, God called Joseph to re-establish the Church of Jesus Christ.
In the spring of 1820, Joseph went to a grove of trees near his home and knelt in prayer. He described his experience: "I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me [ … ] When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other-This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!" (Joseph Smith-History 1:16-17).
This vision of Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ was the beginning of Joseph Smith's calling as a prophet of God. He was told that none of the churches on the earth had the fullness of truth. Over time, Joseph Smith was chosen to establish Christ's Church and restore the priesthood, or the authority to act in God's name. He was led by God to an ancient record and given the ability to translate it into English. This record is called the Book of Mormon. He continued to pray and receive revelation for the Church throughout his life. These revelations were compiled into a book of scriptures referred to as the Doctrine and Covenants and shows that God still leads His children today. Joseph Smith formally organized The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on April 6, 1830.
(CNN) -- It was one of the most unexpected announcements of the year.
In April, Archie Comics released the news that its lead character, Archie Andrews, would die in an upcoming issue of "Life With Archie."

The story won't affect the overall Archie storylines, as "Life With Archie" takes place in an alternate timeline.
Still, the visual of Archie having been gunned down was quite a shock to fans.
With the issue, "Life With Archie" No. 36, coming out today, we now know more details about how Archie dies (spoiler alert, of course!).
Kevin Keller, the first openly gay character in Archie Comics history, is a senator in the "Life With Archie" universe, and he's in favor of gun control.
An attempt is made on Keller's life, and Archie takes the bullet for his friend.
"Archie died as he lived -- a hero, representing the best in all of us," Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater said in a news release.
Goldwater spoke to CNN in April, when the news was broken.
