Having completed Nibley’s Pearl of Great Price lectures, we return for the next few week’s to his Doctrine and Covenants lectures.
During 1978, 1979, and 1980, Hugh Nibley taught a Doctrine and Covenants Sunday School class. Cassette recordings were made of these classes and some have survived and were recently digitized by Steve Whitlock. Most of the tapes were in pretty bad condition. The original recordings usually don’t stop or start at the beginning of the class and there is some background noise. Volumes vary, probably depending upon where the recorder was placed in the room. Many are very low volume but in most cases it’s possible to understand the words. In a couple of cases the ends of one class were put on some space left over from a different class. There’s some mixup around D&C90-100 that couldn’t be figured out so those recordings are as they were on the tapes. Even with these flaws and missing classes, we believe these these will be interesting to listen to and valuable to your Come, Follow Me study program. This week we have two lectures, covering D&C 64 through D&C 75.
All 26 recordings are available immediately as follows:

I really value Br. Nibley’s four part book series, “Teachings of the Book of Mormon” (printed transcripts from an honors class). I have all four, but they are out of print and are very hard to find,
Do you think that there is a reason why these books remain out of print? They are the most valuable and authoritative source I have found on the Book of Mormon, the most priceless book existing on the earth, at this time.
Could find out if there is a possibility of reprinting these ( and in larger , more easily readable text) ?
