Print versions of the scriptures in Afrikaans are now available.

“As members prayerfully learn and teach from the scriptures, their testimonies will grow and they will receive greater direction in their daily lives.” —The First Presidency

The printed versions of the triple combination of the scriptures and the new Book of Mormon in Afrikaans are now available through local distribution centers.

The triple combination contains the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, the Pearl of Great Price, a helpful study aid titled Guide to the Scriptures, and other study aids. The new edition of the Book of Mormon now includes footnotes and the Guide to the Scriptures.

Electronic versions of these new scriptures in Afrikaans, spoken in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, are now available online at ChurchofJesusChrist.org and in the Gospel Library mobile app.

“We encourage members to obtain their own copies of the scriptures and to use them in regular personal and family study and in Church meetings and assignments,” the First Presidency stated. “As members prayerfully learn and teach from the scriptures, their testimonies will grow and they will receive greater direction in their daily lives.”
