2017 Gospel Doctrine curriculum

Starting in January 2017, Gospel Doctrine classes around the world will focus on the Doctrine and Covenants and Church History. Here's the link to the manual: https://www.lds.org/manual/doctrine-and-covenants-and-church-history-gospel-doctrine-teachers-manual?lang=eng

I am looking forward to this topic. For example, Lesson 4 focuses on the Book of Mormon:

Purpose
To help class members recognize the Lord’s hand in the coming forth of the Book of Mormon and to encourage them to study the Book of Mormon, follow its teachings, and share it with others.

There are a lot of details about Church history that I'll be discussing during the year. We'll have many opportunities to discuss what really happened in the early days of the Church, all of which supports the divine authenticity of the Book of Mormon and its setting in North America.
