PURPOSE of Dreams and Visions (from Roger)
The purpose and intent of this book is actually very simple. It is to perhaps convince a few more people to follow the living Prophet a little more closely, and to prepare themselves and their families for the events which lie in the (near?) future by preparing Spiritually (getting temple recommends and using them often), Physically (obtain a minimum one year supply of food, clothing, shelter and other necessities), and Mentally. And as part of this preparation to perhaps come to understand some of the events that they will likely have to pass through. Elder Oaks recently in the April 2004 General Conference encouraged all members of the Church throughout the world to "accelerate our own preparation and try to influence the preparation of those around us." This is a small effort to comply with that counsel.

Chapter 8, SUMMARY & CONCLUSION
WHY IS IT that over the last few years our beloved living prophet, President Hinckley, along with members of the Quorum of the Twelve and other General Authorities have continued emphasizing the nearness of the last days along with spiritual and physical preparation for those events?
In 1995 Roger K. Young's first book "AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT" became an instant LDS best seller, selling over 9,000 copies the first year it was publicly printed, being advertised primarily by word of mouth. This is something of a modern day miracle in LDS publishing in that brother Young was an unknown author (ie. not a General Authority, nor a BYU professor, nor a CES lecture personality) and his book was not published or promoted by an established LDS publisher. However, in 1996 it was one of the few non-Deseret published books honored as a Deseret Book Club book-of-the-month selection. "AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT" continues to be the # 1 selling LDS book on the events of the last days, being highly recommended by Church members and leaders alike.
Building on the immense popularity of "AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT" , brother Young has since written seven additional books, each becoming in its turn, best sellers. His books (over 100,000 copies) are in demand all over the world, being sold in North America, Europe, Australia, South and Central America, even though they are still only printed in English. The State of Utah has also made an abbreviated audio version of "AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT" for use in its blind program.
