This is a Doctrine and Covenants reading chart that shows the surrounding events of each section. This can be helpful, since this standard work is a bit unique in that it lacks an overarching narrative. This way, you can spend less time orienting yourself, and spend more time gaining insights.
This timeline gives you a simple overview of where the Saints were and what events took place in any given year. It’s especially useful when reading the Doctrine and Covenants, for seeing what events were going on at the time a section was received. It covers the five major migrations of the early Latter-day Saints: New York, Ohio, MIssouri, Illinois, and Utah.
