President Kimball wrote this book in stories and examples to help us understand the many different ideas and concepts of faith, and how we can use it in our life I recommend this book as an excellent tool to help understand faith, and how it applies in our lives.
It was good to read this book again It is wonderful to read President Kimball s testimony and teachings of Christ and the importance of having faith in Him and His plan Really each of these chapters are different teachings on several different principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ, but they really all tie back into faith in Christ We must have faith in Him and trust in Him Here are a few of my favorite quotes ideas from this time reading through Faith is needed as much as ever before page 10 [...]
I wanted to read this book because of a brother in my ward who had an enormous health challenge and after re reading this book and a lifetime of dedicated faith no doubt did receive his amazing healing miracle It so impressed me that I finally decided to read it after nearly 40 years since joining the LDS Church President Spencer W Kimball was the prophet when I joined the Church It is based on his discourses, which means that I had heard or read many portions of this book over the years It was [...]
Adam C Zern offers some thoughts In the Latter day Saint culture, Spencer W Kimball s The Miracle of Forgiveness is legendary Spencer W Kimball, the 12th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is known for his bold and forward speaking and writing style The Miracle of Forgiveness has no shortage of straight talk, and Faith Precedes the Miracle is no different Less well known and less read among Latter day Saints than Kimball s other book, Faith Precedes the Miracle is a go [...]
I really enjoyed this book After reading this book I wish I could remember Spencer W Kimball as a prophet He died when I was young and I don t remember him at all This book helped me to get to know him a little better It served as a great reminder that faith is such an important principle of the Gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints It is through faith that all great things come to past Spencer W Kimball was an amazing prophet and a very good writer I loved how he went throug [...]
My husband and I decided to read this in the evenings together I believe every one of us at some point in our live has sought a miracle The first chapter of this book delves immediately into the religious aspects of asking God for a miracle, and the role faith has in such a request.We are immediately taken into the Old Testament and shown examples of prophet showing their faith before receiving their miracle The most moving example for me personally, was being that of Abraham and Isaac Kimball p [...]
I love President Kimball s bold speech Things are very black and white when he talks about them You are either on the Lord s side or you are not There is power in his words At fist I had the thought that some things really do not apply to today s society , most of these selections were written given from the 1950 s to the 1970 s however, gospel truth is eternal truth Sometimes we have a great ability to rationalize what we do not like to hear but like the title indicates, Faith and obedience to [...]
I did not realize when I picked this up that it is not technically a book written by President Spencer W Kimball, but a compilation from his discourses I felt that some of the chapters were put together strangely, bounced around from topic to topic, and were hard to follow It was mostly in the first few chapters and I almost gave up reading the book altogether There is a lot in this book and some of it is outdated For example, it was put together before the change to allow the black members of t [...]
Very great read It s kind of like the Priesthood Relief Society manuals on the Presidents of the Church in that each chapter is a compilation of his words on a particular topic I really enjoyed it, and appreciated his insights My one complaint is that I read it because of the title, and the title ended up having very little to do with what it was actually about Still very glad I read it, though.
Considering her obsession about miracles and such and telling me that faith is not a part of it , I really think this book would benefit And all the other principles covered would be helpful, too I may have to consider buying my own audio copy so she can listen and not wait upon someone to read it to her I ve wanted to read it for myself anyhow.
was a really good book basically a collection of the discourses of SWK a little bit outdated one chapter was about how we shouldn t hate against the native americans and another one was on the issue of blacks not being able to hold the priesthood , but overall, a fantastic read my second time reading it
This took me a long time to work my way through, but I liked it a lot As always with Pres Kimball he just lays it right out there, doesn t beat around the bush about what we re supposed to be doing And it never ceases to amaze me how even though his and other apostles writings were decades ago, they seem so perfectly applicable today.
Sequel to Spencer W Kimball s seminal work, The Miracle of Forgiveness Based on some of his writings and sermons, he addresses topics such as family, marriage, testimony, personal revelation, and morality Through it all runs the thread of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
I enjoyed this book, however I was expecting another book like The Miracle of Forgiveness This book is a collection of talks given by Spencer W Kimball Although all the talks are good I was disapointed that it wasn t one solid book.
I liked it I was surprised at the continuity I was expecting the regular compilation but it seemed to flow really well Of course, if you ve read listened to his previous works you might find some repetition But it had been a while so it didn t bother me.
Loved this book I can tell it was used to compile much of the Teachings of our Times, Spencer W Kimball There were many things in the book I d read and studied over the last year A must read for everyone at an appropriate time in life.
This feels like it came directly out of Pres Kimball s personal scripture journal It s full of citations from scripture and other personal accounts Pres Kimball is very straightforward and methodical in his approach towards the subjects of faith, love, and discipleship.
President Kimball is an amazing man, and I love how straight forward he is in his council There were so many different areas of the gospel this book touches on, it s one you can refer to again and again.
I love President Kimball s forthright way of telling it like it is This is a collection of his talks, which I didn t realize before I started reading it I thought it ll all be on building faith, but it progressed through several different topics.
I first read this book as a senior in high school I learned so much about faith At the time, Elder Kimball was in the Quorum of the Twelve, but when he became the Prophet, I felt as if I knew him because of the insights that he gave in this book I highly recommend reading it.
I was expecting this book to be different I was looking forward to reading a book about Faith, but alasI only got one chapter It should have been named Thoughts On Various Subjects by Spencer W Kimball It is not that I disagreed with what he wrote, it was just that I learned nothing new.
This book, the words of the sharp tongued, sugar free prophet Spencer W Kimball changed my life If you are looking for an overview of why we are here, or are looking for answers to any pressing questions about the church or the gospel, this is a great place to look.
I have loved reading this book, especially as I prepare my Relief Society lessons It is fun to read the powerful talks written by a man that I remember as being so sick, yet so strong I love it dearly and only have about 100 pages to go.
What didn t I learn from this book The title says it all Faith precedes the miracle I have always struggled with having faith, and this book taught me the differenct between belief, desire, and faith I will keep this book on my shelf for sure.
This was a great collection of talks by Pres Kimball I read it straight through to read it and found some talks I will probably read over and over again and some I may never read again I especially liked the sections on faith, and the ones on marriage and family.
Good stuff President Kimball might have had a career as an essayist I especially enjoyed Chapter 2, where throughout he addresses the reader as Nicodemusry interesting.
I had forgotten how straight forward President Kimball was I felt it worthwhile to refresh my memory of his teachings and enjoyed reading his words.
I loved President Kimball He was a true prophet and his words are as true today as when he wrote them Very inspiring and life changing book
That my faith is strong but could be stronger.
Anything that pres kimball has written or said is worth the time.
