Tongan Scriptures Available in New Format

In April 2009 the Tongan edition of the triple combination, containing the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price, became available online at scriptures.lds.org/to.

It was only two years ago that a printed version of the Tongan triple combination became available, benefiting an estimated 80,000 Tongan-speaking members as well as those who speak Tongan as a second language.

The online version of the triple combination in Tongan includes footnotes, maps, and photographs and allows the reader to mark the scriptures and perform key word searches.

Tongan is the 13th language to be added to the Church’s scriptures Web site.

The triple combination of scriptures was already available online in Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish.

Other languages are currently being prepared for online publication.
