Eldin Ricks's Thorough Concordance of the LDS Standard Works is a far cry from the thin, pocket-size Combination Reference that missionaries carried in the 1960s. This hefty, nine-hundred-page volume "is a concordance of the LDS scriptures comparable to the James Strong Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible—a printed concordance of all occurrences of all words in the scriptural text . . . with a meaningful context phrase."

For students of the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price who have no access to a computer concordance or who find computers inconvenient, inaccessible, or confusing, this hard copy is an amazing resource. It is a concordance that "can go anywhere. . . . It can be taken into the classroom by both teacher and student."
