Great to have available in e-book form. The linked index and contents make this so easy to find what you're searching for, something you don't get in the print book.
The word of God as presented to the Community of Christ by its prophets. There are many profound insights into scripture and the call of God for each person. Each Section of the Doctrine and Covenants was democratically accepted by the membership of the church as the word of God for its members.
Follow the transitions of a people of faith as they discern Divine love and grace leading them into inclusive acceptance of diversity that informs their pursuit of mission. This is a church to keep on your radar in an era of post modern Christianity. This book speaks to that journey that can be difficult as well as empowering. A timely read for today.
Wonderful to see this now available as an e-book, lightens up my bag when I'm out working on sermons, worship services, classes, or just reflecting as one less physical book needed in my bag. It would be even better if the table of contents was marked within the file as one so one could jump right to it. And what would be even better is if would make it possible for the publisher to update the volume and push the update to people, rather than making them have to rebuy anytime a new section is added if people want the new section in the same "book" rather than as a separate book. as has now happened with the addition of section 165 which was canonized in June.
I downloaded this book on my Kindle. All of the revelations and words of counsel are now conveniently available. To find your way around the different sections of the text, "Go To" the beginning where you will find a list of all the sections. As you move up and down the list, a little hand with pointed finger appears, and you can use it to move to, and click on, the section you want. Push the "enter" button, and you will be taken to that section.This Kindle version has the same problem that a hardback version of the Doctrine & Covenants has--what to do when a new revelation or "word of counsel" is given and approved by the World Conference. Members have always obtained loose-leaf copies of the new additions and pasted them in the back of existing books. After a few years, they usually buy a new, updated D & C. However, updating this Kindle version will not be possible. So, I assume we will eventually have to purchase updated versions of the book to replace this one. We will cross that bridge when we come to it.For now, I enjoy having it on my Kindle, which I carry with me when I go out to eat or to other places. It is part of my mobil library that I can have with me wherever I go.
I'm so pleased that the Community of Christ Doctrine and Covenants is now available as an e-book. As others have pointed out, this is a big step forward in portability and usability. Thanks, and congratulations, to all who contributed to this important milestone!
This books touches on relegious aspects of the modern days. It touches on important points of the Gospel of Jesus Christ that the New and Old Testament leave out. For anyone who has the desire to better themselves this book is the one for you.
It is easy to use and to quote from as needed. When additions are posted, I am hopeful that additions will be available for purchase.
