Track your reading of the D&C in conjunction with Joseph Smith—History and the Articles of Faith where three levels of headings help you see the geographical and thematic elements. There are two versions of this chart: one in numerical order (i.e., the same order the sections are printed in your bound copy of the scriptures) and the other in chronological order. The dates are based on the new 2013 edition of the D&C, with a few possible exceptions based on the Church’s Joseph Smith Papers project, including research by Robert Woodford and Steven Harper.
Four Doctrine and Covenants Overview Handouts: 1. Helpful titles for sections, 2. a timeline of when the sections were given, 3. a diagram to help you read the it in chronological order, and 4. a chronological checklist to help you keep your personal scripture study goals as you read the D&C in chronological order. Especially useful for seminary or the Sunday school curriculum to help you understand the basic structure of the Doctrine and Covenants.
A beautifully re-designed edition of the Doctrine and Covenants that looks more like a novel. Study aids such as headings and colored dialogue help anyone who wants to understand the storyline and events of the Doctrine and Covenants better.
Here are some insights I gained when I created my own customized the layout of the Doctrine and Covenants from the files on my Do-It-Yourself Scripture page. I created my own personalized edition of the scriptures that is annotated in a way that made sense to me. Since I am sometimes asked this question, let me clarify: I am not talking about writing your own scriptures, or altering the wording of the current scriptures in order to satisfy your preferences. I am talking about choosing fonts and page size, inserting headings where a new section seems to begin, etc.
This morning, I just unwittingly found a small difference in the scriptural text between the 1981 printed edition and the online scripture text. Yes, I know that “thrash” and “thresh” are two forms of the same word, having the same meaning. I also know that the current online edition incorporated small changes to the supplementary material and in a few cases to the punctuation. But I did not know that the online edition had incorporated any changes to the actual wording of the scriptures. Very interesting!
