The manuals for 1903-4 and 1904-5 will be different from those that have preceded them in this particular; that whereas in previous manuals there has been given an analysis of each lesson, accompanied by numerous references to many works, followed by notes conveying information on the subject of the lesson, and developing it, in the present manual the analyses of the lessons will be found grouped together in the fore part, and in the back part of it the complete treatise of the subject under consideration, the “Book of Mormon." It is believed that this single treatise of the Book of Mormon will be as much as our Associations will be able to master during the two coming seasons...
No more important subject than the Book of Mormon can possibly engage the attention of the youth of Israel, and it is to be hoped that under the direction of our Associations they will approach the subject in earnest and with a determination to master it: that they may get into possession of those truths which it teaches, and the evidences that sustain it as a divine revelation; that they may not only be able to make it contribute to the soundness and immovability of their own faith in God and Christ and the Gospel, but that they may also be able to maintain it before all the world as a message from God, tending to make sure the foundations of faith in all the world.
