There's a 1-page section at the start of each the core 20 deity articles explaining the boons that can be gained from the feat. Taking the feat allows you to gain mechanical benefits for performing tasks in the god's honor, starting with a modest boost to a skill or two and growing in power as you gain levels. Each deity offers three different groups of boons: one for evangelists, one for sentinels, and one for exalted; a character can choose any of the three paths for their character, but members of the corresponding prestige classes are locked into the appropriate choice. Being a member of those prestige classes allows you to gain the benefits of the boons more rapidly (as fast as level 8, 11, and 14), but makes all of your class features dependent upon performing your god's Obedience.
EDIT: Or, y'know, what TOZ said.
