BIBLE DICTIONARY
Book of Life
Spoken of in Philip. 4: 3; Rev. 3: 5; Rev. 13: 8; Rev. 17: 8; Rev. 20: 12; Rev. 21: 27; Rev. 22: 19; cf. Dan 12: 1-4; Luke 10: 20. In one sense the book of life is the sum total of one’s thoughts and actions - the record of his life. However, the scriptures indicate that a heavenly record is kept of the faithful, whose names are recorded, as well as an account of their righteous deeds (D&C 88: 2; D&C 128: 7).
