Product Description

Dallin H. Oaks may not have seemed the likeliest choice to become an Apostle. His life path had been anything but conventional. He was only seven when his mother became a widow. His young adulthood saw him joining the National Guard and marrying at nineteen. But all along that path, the Lord was preparing him for the call that would eventually come.

This engaging biography by noted historian Richard E. Turley, Jr. takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the life of an extraordinary leader. It is filled with stories and photographs detailing his boyhood, his family life, his education and military experiences, and his distinguished academic and law career.

Most important, we witness his willingness to set aside that career in favor of a higher responsibility. In 1984, when President Gordon B. Hinckley extended the call to the apostleship, Dallin H. Oaks replied, "My life is in the hands of the Lord, and my career is in the hands of His servants." His lifetime of dedication to the Lord's work gives truth to his words and offers inspiration and faith to all who read his story.

In the Hands of the Lord

By Kathi Leon on 9/20/2021
I've read the first 100 pages and I'm loving learning about President Oaks. His fond memory of meeting the prophet, Heber J. Grant, reminded me of the story my Mom told of also meeting President Grant when she was five years old - it may have been near the same time. I am most impressed about his work in advocating for the poor and his devotion to family. An inspiring example!
