A Disciple's Life: The Biography of Neal A. Maxwell by Bruce C. Hafen - biography - '05

I dog-eared so many pages it is more like a spiritual reference book.

Most outstanding feature of the book is how it reveals Maxwell's weaknesses and shows how he learned to master them, all the while working towards the goal of becoming a disciple of Christ.

Not a perfect man, but drew very close to perfection in his ever striving to understand and adopt the life of a disciple of Christ. Striving.

Man of incredible energy, intellect, and drive. Compassion and empathy did not come easily to him . . . had to learn those attributes.

Very interesting to see how significant he was in the organizational development of the LDS Church, the educational system and the globalization of the LDS Church.

Interesting look into the inner workings of the LDS Church.

Much to learn from this book.
