How to link to the Manual
How to use the table of contents
Like the thumb index for the print version, the table of contents for the electronic version puts the major sections of the Manual at your fingertips.
On smaller screens, you can open the table of contents with the ☰ icon near the logo at the top.
NOTE: Only the sections that traditionally appear in the printed table of contents appear here in the electronic version. For a complete list of sections, please see the Quick Reference.
How to use the Quick Reference
While the table of contents makes it easy to toggle through sections within sections, the Quick Reference allows you to view a complete list of the Manual sections at once. To open a section, select the drop-down arrow to the right, then the desired section, then the GO » button;
How to search the Manual
Search forms appear above and below the table of contents. So at least one is always within reach.
In the top corner on larger screens, you can also access a search form with the magnifying glass icon.
Like most search engines, you can search for individual words or phrases. You can also use quotation marks (
“ ”). For example,
Board of General Superintendents combines searches for each term, board, general, and superintendents; but
“Board of General Superintendents” matches the exact phase, Board of General Superintendents.
