The sources used were deliberately limited to those reference books which should be easily accessible to the Latter-day Saint reader. The primary sources and guides were the standard works of the Church; they are quoted freely and liberally and in sufficient length to identify and maintain the context. The book also includes numerous yet carefully selected quotations, mostly from prophets and apostles, to clarify and amplify and give authority to this work.
This work may thus be viewed as an approach to gospel study and may offer a new perspective and a fresh interpretation of familiar concepts and principles. It can be an effective aid in personal study, a resource for family and group discussions, and a guide for those struggling to understand exactly what our Heavenly Father expects of his children today.
