Joseph and Hyrum Smith were, as Wilford Woodruff put it, among "the most noble spirits that ever graced humanity." The same could be said for all the Presidents of the Church—they truly were men for the ages.

Based on the bestselling lecture series, The Presidents of the Church: Insights into Their Lives and Teachings presents intimate biographical sketches of the first fifteen prophets, focusing on events that helped shaped each man to become a great leader in the Church. Using multiple sources, from original writings to personal memory, author Truman G. Madsen recounts close-up stories with intriguing details and highlights each prophet's characteristic traits.

The Presidents of the Church will give readers a richer understanding of the presidents' backgrounds and personalities and illuminate how each prophet was a man for his own season and played an essential role in the unfolding drama of this ast dispensation.
