Overview

Whether serving as a full-time missionary in Brazil or as second counselor in the First Presidency more than fifty years later, James E. Faust has never forgotten the lesson of his lost lamb. 'I have not always done everything I should have,' he says, 'but I have tried.' In the Strength of the Lord paints a vivid picture of a conscientious steward, a loving father, and a humble yet stalwart emissary of the Lord Jesus Christ. It also presents readers with a valuable collection of President Faust's teachings gleaned from a quarter century of inspired counsel. After being called as a General Authority in 1972, President Faust went to work and did not look back. He went forward in a spirit of helpfulness and humility, blessing the lives of Church members and nonmembers alike with kindness, wisdom, humor, encouragement, and concern. Though unassuming of credit, he has made significant contributions--from helping to plan and build the BYU Jerusalem Center, to overseeing construction of the first temple in South America, to promoting many important behind-the-scenes initiatives such as building bridges with members of other faiths.
