About The Book
Elder Maxwell’s brief introduction acknowledges the kind attention of professionals, family members, and friends during his serious illness, and the regular prayers of many others. He observes that this book “blends the autobiographical and the doctrinal.”
both the title of the book itself and those of the individual chapters come from the words of a well-known hymn. The author’s counsels and comments reflect his experiences and perceptions in the light of the challenges set by his malady and of the appropriate gospel concepts. Thus he early observes that irony, “the hard crust on the bread of adversity,” can try both our faith and our patience.
Our Savior, Jesus Christ, is central to the book as He is to the plan of salvation. “Multiple revelations teach us that redeeming Jesus is uniquely our ‘advocate with the Father,’ that He pleads for us, and that He makes intercession for us….Without this grand reality we would be helpless, and all would be truly and finally hopeless.”
But the guarantees are in place. “He can succor us in any form of the human condition because, as He reminded Joseph in the Liberty Jail: “The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than he?’ No person, therefore, who comes before Him can exclaim, “You don’t understand what I have been through!'”
The author further explains: “Of course, the Father knew beforehand of all human wickedness. He knew beforehand of mankind’s need of a Savior….Mortal sins previously committed and those yet to be committed were atoned for retroactively and prospectively in Gethsemane and on Calvary. For us of the last dispensation, it was ‘paid in advance,’ as it were.”
The last chapter recalls examples of Elder Maxwell’s “intertwinings,” many of them “kindred spirit” friendships. They range from boyhood school days and wartime army service all the way up to General Authority associations. This chapter is a fitting end to a book that is replete with uplifting gospel thoughts that will unfailingly instruct and edify the reader.
