The Faith-Promoting Series began in 1879 with the publication of this book, My First Mission. At that time George Q. Cannon, who was a member of the First Presidency, desired to produce a series of books that would both teach faith and other important gospel principles as well as be entertaining enough that youth would be willing to read them. The results were some of the most important and widest read books in the early-LDS cannon.

But this book is the essential accompaniment to the dictionaries.

How can you see signs in the heavens if you do not know how to read them? The scriptures talk about events surrounding Jesus Christ that were represented by astronomical signs and about future events marking his second coming. It must be remembered that in the Book of Mormon, Samuel the Lamanite was not the president of the Church, nor was he a prophet, Nephi was.
