The Making of the Easy-to-Read Doctrine and Covenants At the 1995 Sunstone Symposium, I heard Lynn Matthews Anderson, author of the Easy-to-Read Book of Mormon, give a presentation in which she explained why she didn’t feel it was feasible to write an Easy-to-Read Doctrine and Covenants. ‘Hmm” I thought. Six years later, the Easy-to-Read Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price is on the shelves. In this presentation, I discuss some of the textual challenges I faced. Be ready: I will also give attendees an opportunity to try their own hand at drafting an easy-to-read version of a Doctrine and Covenants passage.
