As President Packer indicates, this book is a minimal statement about the plan our Father in Heaven has for us. By being a minimal statement, he is not in any way minimizing the importance of the Gospel. Rather, he takes us spiritually to "the bottom line," to the first principles.

Each of these visual images reminds us of our Heavenly Father's love and of His eternal plan. 

President Boyd K. Packer, Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, clearly teaches what has been revealed about the origin of the human family and about our relationship to God.  Dramatic photographs complement the text and remind us of the scope and grandeur of God's creation and of our own divine heritage and limitless potential.

"If we have come to know our Father's plan, we are never completely lost. We know something of how it was before our mortal birth. We know much of what lies beyond the horizon on either side, and which path will be safe for us to follow. With a knowledge of the plan comes also the determination to live the principles leading to eternal life."

Pointing out that "gospel principles are not always fully explained in one place in the scriptures nor presented in order or sequence," President Packer draws together the segments of the plan of salvation: premortal life, mortality, life beyond the grave, and the mission of the Church. Each section includes a clear explanation a long with numerous scriptural references.

Central to the plan is the Lord Jesus Christ, who, in His role as Creator and Redeemer, makes possible our rescue from death and our redemption from sin. President Packer bears his special witness of the Savior and explains the debt owed Him by all creation.

Filled with a timeless and precious message, Our Father's Plan is a reminder of the love of God and of the merciful plan He has fashioned to provide eternal life for His children.

A great introduction of Mormon thought. It provides the key for everything else. This is by a General Authority and is a quick read so you can get the whole plan in one bite. Want to know what LDS teaches about the before, middle and eternal life this is a nice beginning.

"This brief book [is] designed to be read conveniently in one sitting ... This book is an attempt to draw in sweeping outline form the Plan of Redemption, the course that each must follow. It is an effort to present the essential truths each of us must know if we are to move safely through life. Thereafter, separate principles, truths, and ideals gathered at random may be fitted into the plan. ...It was meant to be brief yet inclusive. It was meant to be read more than once."

As President Packer indicates, this book is a minimal statement about the plan our Father in Heaven has for us. By being a minimal statement, he is not in any way minimizing the importance of the Gospel. Rather, he takes us spiritually to "the bottom line," to the first principles. And, as Aristotle observed, wisdom is the science of first principles (Basic Writings of Existentialism (Modern Library Classics) Metaphysics, Bk. 11, ch.1).

So President Packer wants us to be wise by understanding the basics of the Plan of Salvation. His methodology is simple. He gives us a thumbnail preview: "There is great value at the beginning of a course to receive a relatively brief, but very carefully organized, overview of the entire course from beginning to end. Then the class can start at the beginning again and repeat the very same course, this time at greater length and in much more detail. The second time they go over the material, the light of learning shines more brightly because of the perspective that is gained."

Do not expect anything new, but do expect your understanding (and wisdom) to be renewed as you review the gospel fundamentals in a short, yet sweeping review of the plan. He deserves credit for touching upon the heads of gospel ideals, and presenting them in a concise manner.

Being the artist, President Packer has included beautiful illustrations to compliment the beautiful text, and the sublime ideas. This book is meant to be a gift book, and is perfect for new members, soon-to-be missionaries, or old experts wishing to see the gospel in a new way.
