When my wife was investigating the Church, we purchased this book, and found that many of her questions were answered here. This is a wonderful introduction to gospel principles for anyone who is new to the Church and its doctrines.

Perfect missionary tool
by Jill - reviewed on September 11, 2008
This book is a great missionary tool. If you have friends, family, co-workers, etc. that are wanting to know more about the church--this is a great introduction. It's also always nice to have this book to read for the basics to share with people about the church.

I was given this book by a very dear friend before I converted, and it remains very special to me, not only as a gift, but for the words contained in it. I enjoyed reading it and still read it today.

I was given this book as a gift before I converted, and I read it while taking the missionary discussions. This book is fantastic for people who are not familiar with the doctrine and teachings of the Church and it will help them understand and accept the Restored Gospel.
