Although the Book of Mormon has been in the Church for more than a century and has been used repeatedly as a course of study, many of its finest teachings have been neglected and have remained unappreciated by the majority of the members. This has been true chiefly because in most courses of study on the book the greater part of the time has been devoted to the historical matter pertaining to the translation of the records, the general story of the Nephite and Jaredite civilizations, and evidences of the divine nature of the account. This type of treatment has generally left little class time for a detailed study of the Book of Mormon's contributions to specific phases of religious philosophy. This study is not designed to be all comprehensive. There are many fine values left untouched, but some must of necessity be omitted from so brief a course, and if the teachings selected do not always appear to the reader to be the choicest, they are at least among the obvious values of the book and are eminently worthy of study.
