The Melchizedek Priesthood

I was very grateful for the book, a gift from a leader and friend. It was an encouragement to do a good job and fulfill the expectations given to me as someone trusted by God. I hoped to live up to that trust and still do. This book gave a great doctrinal background for what the priesthood of God is, why it works, where it came from, and what it is to be used for. In short, it’s a commission to serve. I love that. In addition, the second half of the book is a list of principles by which the priesthood is usable. These, when followed, are essentially attributes of Jesus Christ, whose priesthood it is. They were very uplifting, inspiring, and aspirational.
