In Wisdom & Order by Boyd K. Packer. {Deseret Book Review}

The timeless counsel King Benjamin lovingly presented to his people includes this simple and thoughtful caution: "See that all these things are done in wisdom and order; for it is not requisite that a man should run faster than he has strength. And again, it is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize; therefore, all things must be done in order" (Mosiah 4:27).In this new collection of addresses, President Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles reiterates an ancient prophet's call to do all things "in wisdom and order."
President Boyd K. Packer has been a familiar face at General Conference for many years.  His pearls of wisdom have been frequently quoted by many…  Always able to express controversial, complicated and sensitive gospel topics with conviction and love, President Packer is also quite a poet and he can be so humorous too.  I love President Packer so what is not to love about In Wisdom & Order?  I couldn't come up with anything!

This book is 28 chapters (272 pages) and encompasses the last 25 years of talks and addresses covering a wide variety of topics including:  faith, profanity, priesthood, callings, temples, children, covenants and lessons from other church leaders.

I really enjoy these types of books that combine several years worth of the very best talks by one of our church leaders.  You can read them straight through like a novel or read them topically.  Every book like this that I have ever had, I have held onto fiercely!  They serve as an invaluable resource for planning talks or lessons, family home evening, or just for the pleasure of reading what you want to know about topics from various church leaders.

In Wisdom & Order currently retails for $23.39 in hardback and only  $13.99 as a bookshelf eBook from DeseretBook.com
