About the book: An Apostle's Witness is a rare and precious gift in today's world. And the testimony of President Boyd K. Packer, developed over the course of more than fifty years as a General Authority, is filled with wisdom and understanding.
"All knowledge is not necessarily of equal value," President Packer reminds us. In this timely book, he speaks of truths that "can be crucial to happiness as well as to exaltation." These are truths "most worth knowing," and they are essential to our progress in mortality and throughout eternity.
"The most important truth," writes President Packer, "is, of course, my witness of Jesus Christ." The stories, experiences, and principles he shares in this volume bear powerful witness of that greatest truth of all.
My review: I enjoyed this book. I like the way they made it look. The paper looks old, there are full page quotes, the type on the pages is bigger than a normal book, and each section of the book has a beautiful full page picture. I liked that a lot of these are taken from either conference talks, or articles that President Packer wrote for the Ensign. I love that there were a lot of familiar stories about his life to read. He really was one of the best at including stories that would make a point and resonate with the listener or reader.
This book is a beautiful tribute to the wonderful life of a wonderful man. Make sure you take time to read it!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
