These books or the people peddling them as books of God are way too late to be considered as equal to the Bible as inspired books of God.
Jesus told His apostles that they would be guided by the Spirit into all truth (John 16:13). All truth from God was therefore completely given through the apostles of Jesus in the first century. If the apostles didn't preach it and deliver it, it is not God's truth. Paul wrote that "if we or an angel from heaven preaches any other gospel than what we have preached, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:6-10). The Quran (630 AD) is something the apostles did not preach. Therefore, those who preach the Quran are under the curse of God. The Book of Mormon (1830) is not what the apostles preached. Therefore, those who support the Book of Mormon are likewise under the curse of God.
The scriptures of the Bible "completely furnish the man of God" (II Timothy 3:16-17). God's complete truth is in the 66 books of the Bible. All the truth God wants us to follow is in the Bible alone. The Old Testament section was for the Jews to prepare for the coming Messiah who turned out to be Jesus the Christ. The New Testament is the testimony and covenant of Jesus Christ. We are "complete" in Him (Colossians 2:10) which means that all our spiritual needs are completely met in Christ. Therefore, we do not need the Quran or the Book of Mormon. These are forgeries and fakes.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. There is no other way to a right relationship with God. Other paths will take you away from the true and living God (John 14:6). Be sure you are not being misled about such matters.
