The Guide to the Scriptures

    Book of Life

    In one sense the Book of Life is the total of a person’s thoughts and actions—the record of his life. However, the scriptures also indicate that a heavenly record is kept of the faithful, including their names and accounts of their righteous deeds.

    • The Lord will blot sinners out of his book:Ex. 32:33;
    • He that overcomes will not be blotted out of the book of life:Rev. 3:5;
    • Another book was opened, which is the book of life:Rev. 20:12; ( D&C 128:6–7; )
    • The names of the righteous shall be written in the book of life:Alma 5:58;
    • Your prayers are recorded in the book of the names of the sanctified:D&C 88:2;
