In the Service of the Lord

The Lord's apostles have always faced opposition, yet through their experiences they show us how to handle adversity and stay true to the Lord while establishing Zion throughout the world.

In this collection you will read about:

  • Parley P. Pratt's miraculous escape from a sheriff's bloodhound
  • Heber C. Kimball's confrontation with a legion of devils
  • Matthew Cowley's amazing missionary journeys among the islands of the sea
  • Alonzo Hinckley's miraculous understanding of the Dutch language
  • James E. Talmage's parable of the unwise bee
  • Reed Smoot's faith-promoting experiences with presidents of the United States
  • Plus more than 160 additional experiences.

This book will touch your heart and create a greater appreciation for the service given by the apostles of the Church. A wonderful reference tool for Family Home Evening or Church lessons.


"This is an exceptional collection of stories about exceptional men, some stories often told, and others new to most of us. It's the perfect gift for gospel teachers and anyone who needs a testimony-building reading experience."
