The release of new content on the Joseph Smith Papers website provides readers with an illuminating walk back in time as documents disclose new chapters in early Church history. The latest release includes the 1835 edition of the Doctrine and Covenants, hundreds of miscellaneous documents from 1840, Parley P. Pratt’s two volumes on the Church’s persecutions, the Book of the Law of the Lord, and the introduction to the Manuscript History. All are priceless for their historic value.

The way technology is being used to tell that story is truly remarkable!
