As early as 1820, Joseph Smith challenged the world with a new concept of God, a concept that Latter-day Saints, even today, have not understood. Nor have we comprehended and seen it in its proper relationship to the gospel. This book teaches the distinct doctrines regarding the nature of God into four fundamental parts: first, the Prophet Joseph Smith, as we find in the Pearl of Great Price, taught us concerning a personal God; second, he taught us concerning a God of divine glory; third, he taught us concerning a God as an Eternal Father; and, finally, he taught us concerning God as a social being, an individual who is related with other divine Beings, in a divine economy after which the Law of Consecration and Stewardship, as we know it, is patterned. We must understand Him in these four relationships; and see how these related aspects tie in with each other. Then, seeing things from this light, many important questions pertaining to God may be reconciled.
This book shares these teachings and answers questions to help draw nearer to our loving Father in Heaven, who wants us to learn of Him and understand His ways. This book will be a valuable collection to any Latter-day Saint library.
