This beautiful book describes the compilation and publication of the book known to people of the LDS or Mormon faith as the Doctrine and Covenants. But it wasn't originally called that and only through the inspiration and guidance of the Lord did the book come to be at all. It was fascinating to me to read about how the book came to be and the changes that have occurred over the years, mostly in terms of formatting and footnotes, but also a few changes in regard to content. The facsimiles of pages from older editions as well as photographs add to the value of this book. The design of the book makes it feel like a gift book, but the information contained within makes it so much more. For those who are interested in finding out more about the history of the Doctrine and Covenants I highly recommend this title.
