The Pastors' Reference Library has been of great value to the priesthood and leadership of the Church. It has formed the central corps of books considered by priesthood as essential to their ministry. It has set standards for our work and helped to unify the Church. The Priesthood Manual is one of this group of publications.
From time to time it has been necessary to revise and update The Priesthood Manual to keep it current with the growth of the Church.
