About God and His Church: a Scripture Study Guide
God and His Church: a Scripture Study Guide is a book that serves several functions: (1) it is a reference volume, (2) it is a topical study guide, (3) each topic is organized as an effective talk or lesson outline, and (4) it a valuable source for a scripture memorization program. It lists ten chosen passages on 59 different subjects grouped together under eight general headings. Topics in God and His Church: a Scripture Study Guide include:  Scripture (4 topics);  The Gods We Serve (13 topics);  Apostasy of the Primitive Church (2 topics);  Restoration of the Church (6 topics);  Authority and Priesthood (6 topics);  First Principles of the Gospel (8 topics);  Working in the Church (14 topics); and  Missionary Work (6 topics). That’s a total of 59 topics, 590 key scriptures! A valuable feature is that the 10 passages in each topic are conveniently arranged in an order that’s appropriate as an outline for a very meaningful and inspirational talk in a number of Church settings. And each and every one of the 59 topics is centered in a key principle which is essential for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to master in their efforts to become like the Savior and striving to live a Christ-like life. Reading, marking, and (hopefully) memorizing many of these passages can touch your life, and the lives of others around you, and motivate you towards true eternal growth! God and His Church: a Scripture Study Guide is part of a four-volume scripture-guide series. The other three books are: Come Unto Christ, The Plan of Salvation and The Future in Prophecy, and A Guide to Effective Scripture Study. The specific contents of each of the other three books are listed at the end of this book. See Contents of Companion Volumes.
