In a general conference address in April 1993, President Howard W. Hunter asked members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, "How often do we think of the Savior? How deeply and gratefully and how adoringly do we reflect on his life? How central to our lives do we know him to be?"

This took a while for me to finish because some of the chapters were so profound and moving I had to stop and really grab hold of what he was saying. Very powerful book. LDS or not, this has some amazing life applications and how to be joyful in the worst of times... At first I thought when I was done I would give it to a used bookstore, now I think I will keep it to refer back to when times are hard.
I would have enjoyed this much better if I hadn't waited till right before Book Review night - it took me 2 days where I wish I would've spent 2+ weeks with it. President Hunter was more of a scriptorian than I knew - loved how he pulled me into the scriptures.
Interesting read, good thoughts. I especially liked the use of the hymns and poetry. Some good background stories of the hymns--especially of Master, the Tempest is Raging. (p. 41)
I gained a real love and admiration for Pres. Hunter after reading this book. So much so. . . I did a book review on it, I wanted everyone to read it!

Excellent series of essays by Pres. Howard W. Hunter. His faith, his testimony, and his love for everyone really come out beautifully in these essays.
So good! So many inspiring insights by a prophet of God. Joy is all around us--we just need to see, feel and appreciate it. Great book.
I love his teachings and his perspective on things.
