Introduction and the Text & Context of Section 1
Laura and Brian are joined by Mormon Historian Devery Anderson. They begin by discussing the Explanatory Introduction to the Doctrine and Covenants and some of the differences in the several editions, followed by an examination of the circumstances behind Section 1, with emphasis on the phrase “the only true and living church” from verse 30.
Note: Text & Context will likely end up being a “miniseries” of episodes exploring the literary and historical context of the Doctrine & Covenants. As soon as we map out all the episodes we will put this in its own podcast stream.
