Opening in Matthew 15 (Mark 7, Luke 9, and John 7), McConkie expounds the doctrine that Christ teaches, strengthens the reader's soul, and illuminates the fire of the gospel. It continues through the Sermon on the Mount, and increased opposition from the corrupt leaders, and finishes with Jesus' final teaching in the Temple and the Olivet discourse to the Apostles.

It is absolutely amazing how much these books teach about the Christ. Awesome.
