The headings of the six parts to the book- Direction, Inspiration, Caution, Admonition, Understanding, Assurance- signal the mode of their respective contents. The chapters they embrace are alive with stimulating inspiring concepts: The effort-intense production and the immense spiritual value of the new editions of Latter-day Saint scriptures. The essence of education- not knowledge well stored but knowledge well directed in service to others. The patriotism and just the common decency of common citizens in America's early days, and the implications for us today. The only-true-church challenge- we must affirm this doctrine despite others' accusations of arrogance. Maintaining the steady course of faith and trust in God, however rough the waters. One's responsibility to give, having been given much. How we really can know God lives and loves us. How, indeed, "beneath His watchful eye His Saints securely dwell." These are a few of the gospel-rich ideas clearly and expressively set forth in this book. Six pencil drawings represent, in various situations, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world- our only source of lasting peace and comfort. These pages abound with sound advice and comforting counsel. Varied in style and tone depending on the occasion, the talks set out gospel principles with a clarity and facility of expression that the author's hearers have come to love and admire. They are illuminated by a wealth of personal experiences and here and there by one of his original parables. Best of all, they firmly encourage and strengthen the reader as they reaffirm the author's apostolic testimony of and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and in His unique power to bring us peace.
