What can latter-day revelation teach us about the Creation, the Atonement and the Second Coming? How can knowing the history of the early days of the Church help us understand the future blessings promised to a worldwide Church? This first volume of a comprehensive four-volume series, A Commentary on the Doctrine and Covenants, by Stephen E. Robinson and H. Dean Garrett, answers historical and doctrinal questions about the Doctrine and Covenants. Volume 1 covers, verse by verse, the first 40 sections of the Doctrine and Covenants. The authors have drawn from countless sources - original diaries, journals, maps and atlases - to bring to life the history and doctrine of the Doctrine and Covenants in an easy-to-read format. Throughout the detailed studies, in-depth analysis, and perceptive commentary contained in this remarkable book, the authors' love for the Doctrine and Covenants shines forth.
