The above headings apply to the various editions as follows:

  • In the four larger editions, the headings numbered 1 to 40 are chapters, grouped under the eight parts (Part A to Part H).
  • In the Concise Edition (third smallest), parts A to H are chapters, in which the other 40 headings appear.
  • In the Pocket Edition (second smallest), Section 1: What to Know and Section 2: What to Do are chapters, containing headings reflecting the eight parts (and their colors).
  • The Two-Minute Edition is very small and the above headings are hardly applicable.

The chapters are further divided into sections. Under these are subheadings, each of which are followed by Bible verses. (As explained elsewhere, the subheadings are based on the verses rather than the verses being selected to support the subheadings.) Occasionally the verses are followed by a comment.

The following links show the contents of all but the Two-Minute Edition.


Note that there is no correlation between the colors used for the headings Parts A to H above and those of the covers of the editions.
