This study is an examination, in terms of critical areas identified by correlation, of the 1967-68 lesson manuals prepared for high school age LDS youth by the teaching organizations of the Church responsible for implementing a correlated religious education program for this age group.
Major findings center around the answers to the questions formulated to limit and analyze the problem of this study, and were obtained by examining the lesson manuals and identifying the major themes or concepts contained in them. These findings indicate: (1) that duplication or repetition of gospel concepts does exist in the lesson materials, (2) that gaps, omissions, and inequalities in the emphasis of gospel concepts within these materials do exist, and (3) that the most emphasized gospel concepts are Book of Mormon leaders, priesthood, socials, service, family unity, Old Testament leaders, activities, Book of Mormon history, New Testament leaders, and Jesus Christ, respectively.
