Doctrine and Covenants Commentary



Data Set Description Summary

While laboring in the European Missions, Elder Hyrum M. Smith, of the Council of the Twelve Apostles, and Elder Janne M. Sjodahl, were impressed very fervently with the desire to prepare a commentary dealing with the revelations given by the Lord to the Prophet Joseph Smith.

In their odd moments, when not otherwise engaged, during the years 1913–1916, these brethren carried on a careful research and study and prepared this volume which has met with popular favor. Since the time of the first publication many world-wide events of the greatest importance have occurred many of which have a bearing on the fulfillment of the prophecies found in the Doctrine and Covenants-these have been noted. The Doctrine and Covenants is a sacred volume of scripture, and in the revision and preparation of this book, the members of the committee have felt their weakness in commenting on these sacred commandments and revelations coming from the Lord.
