Book of Mormon large print study edition

#book-of-mormon #book-of-mormon-study-edition #lds #releases #scriptures

By request, I’ve made a large print version of the Book of Mormon wide margin study edition:

Because Lulu’s spiral binding limit is 470 pages, I had to break it up into two volumes.

Book of Mormon reader’s edition 3.0

#book-of-mormon #lds #readers-editions #releases #scriptures

After far too long, the re-typeset print edition of the Book of Mormon reader’s edition is now available. You can download the PDF or purchase a perfect-bound paperback via Lulu.

There’s also a new spiral-bound wide margin edition. It’s basically the reparagraphed text of the reader’s edition in the wide margin style of the study edition.

Print editions of the D&C reader’s edition, the Pearl of Great Price reader’s edition, and Words of the Prophets are all still forthcoming. (I’m hoping to get to them soon.)

(Note: the EPUB and Kindle editions are still at version 2.1 since nothing changed.)

Just released version 2.1 of the reader’s edition of the Book of Mormon. (Fixes two minor typos.)

Also, the print edition is getting closer. I’ve been refactoring my publishing scripts to make things more seamless on my end, and that’s close to done.

I’ve updated the rest of the scriptures in Word to match the new formatting, and I’ve added the remaining volumes of scripture to Google Docs as well. I’ve also added First Presidency Christmas devotionals to the Collected Talks.

Scriptures in Google Docs

#book-of-mormon #google-docs #mormon #scriptures

I’ve taken the Word edition of the Book of Mormon and have uploaded it to Google Docs, where people can then copy it to their local Google Drive and use it as a study aid (highlighting, comments, etc.):

It also allows for some interesting collaborative scripture study possibilities.

The other volumes of scripture will be coming soon.

Book of Mormon in Word redesigned

#book-of-mormon #microsoft-word #mormon #scriptures

I recently realized that I never actually put any design effort into the scriptures in Word. Pretty lackluster:

So I’m now redesigning them. The Book of Mormon is done and released as version 2.0:

I’m still working on the other volumes and hope to release them soon.

Book of Mormon study edition 2.0

I’m pleased to announce version 2.0 of my Book of Mormon study edition.

This version now uses the licensed text of the scriptures from the Church, which means I’m finally able to make editions in other languages. To start out, we’ve got French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and of course Spanish.

To make it easier to create versions of the study edition in other languages, I started over from scratch, using a set of Python scripts to pull the text from the files the Church sent me, then generate a LaTeX document that gets turned into the PDF. It’s a really nice workflow.

Over the next month or so I’ll be revising several of my other scriptures projects (reader’s edition, Words of the Prophets, etc.) to use the licensed text, with a similar Python-based workflow to make updates easier.

Also, if you’re interested in a study edition in a new language, let me know.
