 About the Book 

President Ezra Taft Benson (1899 to 1994) , the thirteenth President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was called as an Apostle in 1943, and served until 1985, when he became the President of the Church upon the death of PresidentMorePresident Ezra Taft Benson (1899 to 1994) , the thirteenth President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was called as an Apostle in 1943, and served until 1985, when he became the President of the Church upon the death of President Spencer W. Kimball. From 1953 to 1961 he served as Secretary of Agriculture in the cabinet of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. President Benson would often pose this rhetorical question when faced with questions of importance in the administration of the Church: Whats best for the Kingdom? This question became a kind of touchstone by which he guided not only the Church but also his daily walk as a man and a disciple of Jesus Christ.This book is the first part of a seven volume work entitled Remembering Seven Prophets, which are based upon the reminiscences of President Bensons scribe and secretary, Francis M. Gibbons. Now in his ninety-fourth year, Brother Gibbons worked personally with seven Presidents of the Church and is the most prolific biographer of LDS Church Presidents in the history of the Church.Included in this book are many unique stories, anecdotes and insights about President Ezra Taft Benson which are available nowhere else.
