The Scripture Citation Index is the mobile version of scriptures.byu.edu.
This app lets you navigate easily between the scriptures (standard works of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: The Holy Bible, The Book of Mormon, etc.) and the General Conference talks and other writings that cite those scriptures.
For example, you can see who has cited 1 Timothy 4:12 or Daniel 2:44 in General Conference (1942-present), in the Journal of Discourses, or in Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith.
Our users tell us that this app is very helpful for scripture study and lesson/talk preparation.
Updated the app to include citations from April 2019.
Ratings and Reviews
As noted previously, this is a great way to study the scriptures or prepare talks. Can't imagine all the time that it took to put this collection together. It is very convenient to see what church authorities have said about a particular verse or set of verses.
In addition, it has additional material such as General Conference talks, all the way back to 1942! (The church's official app Gospel Library only goes back to 1971). I just recently discovered the powerful search and advanced search options available within the app, which are very powerful to filter results to what you are looking for. Check them out! I cannot imagine why anyone remotely interested in studying the scriptures would not want to install this app. Highly recommended!
Delightful: w JD, Conference Talks, TPJS
I have had a hard copy of the Journal of Discourses (JD) for 40 years, but with this App, I have read more from JD in the few years than in the previous 4 decades. It is delightful to have them continuously at my fingertips. In 2014 I "loaned" out my printed volumes because I now read them here instead. The Citation Index is working very nicely.
I appreciate that the conference talks are included back to 1942, and TPJS. I am thankful to those who labor to add in the latest conference talks every six months.
Good App with Room to Grow
I really like this app. It is nice to use as a reference companion. The graphic interphase is clean, but often feels a little cluttered and old fashioned.
One feature that would be exceptionally useful to those of us who are trying to focus on the words of living prophets or who teach in S&I would be a way to check ALL (or at least the most recent) talks citing a specific chapter/section, rather than by grouped verses. With larger pieces of text it is often hard to click through all of the subsections looking for related statements in the most recent general conferences.
Thanks for making this wonderful resource available!
