This is a hard-hitting book that is crucial for our times. It is well foot-noted throughout by knowledgeable and distinguished civic and national leaders who corroborate the words of the prophets. It represents the statements of LDS Church leaders on such subjects as: Morality — Spirituality — Religion; Church and State; Free Enterprise and Capitalism; The American Republic; Communism — An International Criminal Conspiracy; The Welfare State — Creeping Socialism; American Foreign Policy; War and Peace; Capital Punishment; Birth Control; and many others. All of the material has appeared in official Church publications, in published books or pamphlets, or in reprints of speeches or articles distributed with the permission of the individual quoted. The Prophets, including members of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, have only been quoted after they were ordained to their prophetic office.

Ezra Taft Benson was one of the two cabinet members with Eisenhower through his eight years.
This is a book about Benson’s experiences in the white house under President Eisenhower. A forward looking conservative, Eisenhower’s most embattled cabinet officer, tells the story of harsh political infighting, of deep spiritual convictions, and of ultimate triumph. This is a great book by one of the most patriotic and politically involved LDS prophets, Ezra Taft Benson.
