What did the book of the dead do for the ancient egyptians?

well, the book of the dead mostly concentrated on protecting the deceased in the after-life. But, it also holds other important things like....instructions on how to take care of the dead in there tomb or sarcophagus, how to pass the weighing of the heart, and how to act in front of all the gods and goddesses.
