The purpose of this page is to list the abbreviations used for the books in the Standard Works of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These abbreviations are particularly important to this site because they are adopted as the standard for linking to particular verses, e.g. to link to the scriptures Genesis 1:1 we use the standard abbreviation, namely Gen 1:1.
