Because of the thoughtful, teaching-focused way the book is compiled, teachers can focus on creating a unique experience within their classes.

This book may be particularly helpful for newer teachers who are looking for additional resources because it includes hymns, quotes and handouts that help simplify lesson planning. Lesson plans are also included, which can allow teachers more time to personalize the lessons and removes the stress of creating an appropriate lesson while amplifying the learning experience.

It can also help supplement a teacher or student's other readings while learning about the doctrine. The teachings of President Gordon B. Hinckley, the 15th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, are thoroughly detailed with a unique perspective and a focus on the essential scriptures that allows for a valuable but unique learning experience.

Overall, Boice has crafted a well-executed and incredibly helpful collection of teaching resources.
