Overview

This first volume of A Commentary on the Doctrine and Covenants, answers historical and doctrinal questions about the Doctrine and Covenants. Volume 1 covers the first 40 sections of the Doctrine and Covenants. We learn about the historical context of the revelations recorded in the Doctrine and Covenants, insights from modern prophets and apostles, sublime doctrines illuminated for the latter-day Church.



The second volume covers sections 41 through 80. Some of the things we learn about in this volume are the law of consecration, how to discern the gifts of the Spirit, how transgressors are to be disciplined, and the manner in which the sick are to be blessed.



In the third volume which covers sections 81-105, authors Stephen E. Robinson and H. Dean Garrett draw from numerous sources to bring to life the history and doctrine of the Doctrine and Covenants in an easy-to-read format. Using original diaries, journals, maps, and atlases, they set a historical context that helps clarify what is being said in the scriptures.



The final volume covers sections 106 through 138. This volume discusses principles relating to eternal marriage, Church government, the exercise of the priesthood, temple work, the Resurrection, and redemption of the dead.



A Commentary on the Doctrine and Covenants invites us to study more deeply the history and doctrine recorded in this vital book of scripture. It is a commentary that rewards us amply for our efforts. Throughout the detailed studies, in-depth analysis, and perceptive commentary contained in these remarkable books, the authors' love for the Doctrine and Covenants shines forth.
