Comparative Chart 1: 1835 and 1990 Editions of the Lectures on Faith

“Comparative Chart 1: 1835 and 1990 Editions of the Lectures on Faith,” in The Lectures on Faith in Historical Perspective, ed. Larry E. Dahl and Charles D. Tate Jr. (Provo, UT: Religious Studies Center, Brigham Young University), 109–33.

Comparative Chart 1: 1835 and 1990 Editions of the Lectures on Faith​

The 1990 edition has corrected and standardized all scripture references in the Lectures on Faith to current editions of the scriptures and the Joseph Smith Translation. In keeping with the 1985 edition, we have added references to the book of Moses, where appropriate, to facilitate referencing. However, none of these corrections or additions are reflected in this chart. For any changes of this kind, refer to Chart 2 (beginning on page 135), which shows the correcting of scripture references over the years.

In the genealogies of Lecture 2, the word years was sometimes left off when ages were given in the 1835 edition. To save space, this chart does not list the occasions where the 1990 edition has added the word to provide uniformity.
