Truman G Madsen says in the foreword:
For teachers in all levels of Church administration and practice, for parents who are concerned to 'go to the source' when counseling and guiding and testifying in the home, for students who seek a handbook of Mormon sources that will withstand careful scholarly scrutiny, for Latter-day Saints who wish to treasure up the fundamental teachings of the Restoration at a very fountainhead, and for all in or beyond the Church who have begun to recognize that in his high and inspired moments Joseph Smith passed on to this generation 'gems for the sanctified,' this book in not only useful, it is indispensable.
