It is likely that the Book of Mormon was the first place Joseph Smith saw this doctrine laid out in a systematic way. Once a reader knows that Joseph Smith likely got these ideas about the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel from the Book of Mormon, the entire book opens up as a major source for better understanding these principles. Readers learn how to exercise faith even when they do not feel like they have very much faith. They learn the importance of humility for repentance, and learn the intimate connection between repentance and baptism.
