    One thought on “Discourses of President Gordon B. Hinckley, Vol. 1: 1995-1999”

    1. Gordon B. Hinckley is a very funny and spiritual man. I started reading this while he was still prophet and President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, under the theory that the prophet one should listen to most is the one who's alive.

    3. The book is divided into three sections: (1) General Conference and Other General Meetings, (2) Member Meetings that includes missionary meetings, devotionals and regional conferences and (3) Messages to the General Public that includes the 60 Minutes interview with Mike Wallace and other community speaking engagements. I particularly enjoyed the messages to the general public as they were great examples of how to articulate the beliefs of the Gospel.

    4. What a life and what a great man ! It is wonderful to read and enjoy this book over and over again. Now on to Vol. 2 !!!
