Publication of a new "Three-in-One"—the Inspired Version of the Bible, the Book of Mormon (1908 edition), and the Book of Doctrine and Covenants (through Section 144).

 The Scripture Committee has been working on publication of a new "Three-in-One" since August, 2012. The committee consists of nine people from the Restoration who are associated with various Church and publishing interests. From time to time the committee has had the input and advice from several other groups and individuals.

 The committee decided early that it wanted to produce the best set of Scriptures possible. We learned that many changes have been made over the years to the Inspired Version, to the 1908 edition of the Book of Mormon, and to the Doctrine and Covenants. Some of the changes are in spelling, some are minor word changes (the/that, is/was, etc.), and some are typographical errors or errors of the scribes and/or editorial committees.

 God is not the author of confusion or of mistakes, but man is not always accurate. The Book of Mormon says it well: "And now if there are faults, they are the mistakes of men; wherefore, condemn not the things of God" ("Moroni’s Preface") and "Blessed be him that shall bring this thing [Book of Mormon] to light, shall be done by the power of God; and if there be faults, they be faults of a man" (Mormon 4:20-21).

 Thus, the committee has been forced to look at various printings of the Scriptures to see what has been done and then to make the best choices it can. We want the Scriptures we produce to be familiar to the readers but not have the problems that other printings have. As sections of the Scriptures have been completed (or nearly completed), the committee has invited a number of people to read through the text of individual books for internal integrity and consistency. Their involvement has uncovered a few—and really a very few—problems, which the committee has met to correct.

 We believe that this work will be of great worth to this generation, and we invite you to make this project a matter of prayer. If you are interested in assisting as a reader, please send a message to As of December, 2014, all of the New Testament, all of the Book of Mormon, and all of the Old Testament books are available for you to read.
