Newly revised and enlarged, this important book by one of the prominent leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints now becomes even more valuable as a message for today's youth—and for adults as well.
For the most part the writings contained herein are based on a series of radio messages delivered in 1945 under the heading "Youth and the Church."
Though the author talked directly and frankly to the youth about their problems of that day, it is amazing to note that the wisdom of his counsel is so pertinent and applicable to the problems of this present day. This fact attests to the unchanging principles of truth found in the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, which teachings provide the "answers to every question and the solution of every problem essential to the social, temporal, and spiritual welfare of human beings who are all the children of God, our Eternal Father."
These messages, which were so popular among youth of the day they were first given, are just as vital for the eternal well-being of today's most promising generation, faced as it is with the never-ending contest between truth and error, righteousness and wickedness.
Says the author: "If by a reading of my humble offerings the reader is induced to a deeper study of the Scriptures wherein may be found the sure guide to eternal happiness through an abiding testimony in the mission of the Lord Jesus Christ, I will have accomplished my purpose."
