The New Publications of the Standard Works—1979, 1981



In 1972, leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints began the creation of an LDS edition of the King James Bible with new chapter headings, footnotes, and cross-references to other LDS scripture. The text of the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible, a Bible dictionary, and a topical guide were also included. In the course of this work they expanded the project to include new versions of the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price. Corrections to these latter texts were made based on careful historical research, and a more complete index was added. The LDS edition of the Holy Bible was published in 1979 and the other scriptures in 1981.
