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 relevant to the next week’s Come, Follow Me lesson.
All 26 recordings are available immediately as follows:
- Come, Follow Me Resource Index: Doctrine and Covenants — 2021 at https://interpreterfoundation.org/come-follow-me/doctrine-covenants-2021-index/
- The individual Come, Follow Me Doctrine & Covenants 2021 Lesson pages found at https://interpreterfoundation.org/come-follow-me/doctrine-covenants-2021-lessons/
- In the Complete Bibliography for Hugh Nibley (CBHN) through any of the indexes or through a search. For example, on the Topical Bibliography (https://interpreterfoundation.org/bibliographies/hugh-w-nibley/topical/) look under Doctrine and Covenants for a complete listing.

Thank you so much for making this available!!!
This is really confusing. You said, “All 26 recordings are available immediately as follows:” so I looked and I can’t find any in the 3 sections you list afterwards and below that there only 2 links to Nibley recordings. For some of us who aren’t very computer literate, your directions aren’t clear.
On the Resource Index page, the recordings are included under the Come, Follow Me sections they are relevant to. So, if you open the Lesson 36 tab and look down through the list of links, about half way down you will see “Nibley Lecture – D&C 90-101, Dec 16, 1979.” The first lesson that has a relevant lecture is Lesson 5 on D&C 6-9.
Likewise, the Come, Follow Me lesson page only shows the individual lessons and you need to go to a lesson to see if there are any Nibley lectures pertinent to that lesson.
The one place where you can see a list of all of the Nibley D&C Lectures that we have recording for is on the Nibley Topical Bibliography page, where, if you open the Doctrine & Covenants tab, they are all listed immediately below the heading.
I hope this helps,
