This second volume of inspirational speeches given by W. Cleon Skousen contains some of the fascinating gospel “diamonds” that he has discovered and shared with audiences during a lifetime of speaking, writing, and research. Footnotes and references have been added to help the reader further pursue these interesting subjects.
Speeches included in this volume are his well-known “The Book of Mormon and the Constitution,” “Why Must We Die?,” “This Business of Building Men” and “Know the Truth to Stay Free.” There are twenty-two other fascinating speeches that teach important doctrines about the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Church, the youth of the Church, the power and majesty of God, and world studies. Also included is a synopsis of a tour to the Holy Land, something Dr. Skousen led over 20 times.
In these speeches, Brother Skousen covers a subject in a few brush strokes that would normally fill many volumes, making it possible to quickly grasp a larger picture of God’s plan of happiness for the human race.
W. Cleon Skousen has a special gift to make complex subjects easily understandable, which he teaches in an entertaining and enlightening manner. Each of the talks in this book are the result of many years of research. Readers of this book will truly discover a treasure trove of what he called “gospel diamond dust.”
