The First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles have established the Teachings of Presidents of the Church series to help you draw closer to your Heavenly Father and deepen your understanding of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. As the church adds volumes to this series, you will build a collection of Gospel reference books for your home. These books are designed to be used for personal study and for Sunday instruction. They can also help you prepare family home evening lessons, prepare other lessons or talks, and answer questions about church doctrine. This book features the teachings of President Howard W. Hunter, who served as president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from June 5, 1994, to March 3, 1995.
