Recommends it for: Students of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
Shelves: history, religion
The more I read this book, the more I enjoyed it. It was heartening to find how often portions of it are quoted in the BYU Religion 324-325 Doctrine and Covenants Student Manual.

It was very nice to have biographies of people who are briefly mentioned in The Doctrine and Covenants of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, helping me to know what became of them after they were addressed in a revelation.

This review applies to the Deseret Book 1974 printing of the 1972 "Revised Edition".
Lots of great information tucked away between verses here. This is a whole new way to read the D&C and the fantastic commentary really opens up some interesting discussions with my wife.
I enjoyed reading this book very much. I appreciate the effort made to provide historical and theological elaboration on the contents of the Doctrine and Covenants.

Great read regarding church history and inspired commentary but only likely of interest to LDS members... a bit dry and times but very good work.
