Propane Furnace for Dummies?

My Inner City central propane furnace is working okay, it fires up about 30 - 60 seconds from when the stat calls for heat. Can someone tell me how this works? i.e. stat calls for heat, something glows, then there is a click and the gas ignites and heat comes out. Just trying to understand what is happening in the background and the terminology.

It varies with each furnace - you can find detailed info in the service manual. (sequence of operation)

Service manuals are often readily available online, but not from the manufacturer.
