Description

Product Description

More than a biography...

What kind of life preparation does the Lord give the men He will one day call to be prophet? And what are the lessons to be learned from such a life? From being raised in a home without the foundation of the gospel to the early days of his marriage and the stress of medical school to his last open-heart surgery in China, President Russell M. Nelson took advantage of every opportunity to learn and become more. In Insights from a Prophet s Life, Sheri Dew takes us through the life of President Nelson from childhood to the current day. This unique collection of life experiences is told in short episodes for the purpose of helping readers gain their own personal insights. For if we have much to learn from what a prophet says, surely we have much to learn from how a prophet lives

Review

In studying a prophet s life, we see how the Lord molds, prepares, and tutors a man so that at the appointed hour, he is able, worthy, and ready to be His mouthpiece.

-- --Sheri Dew - author

I loved the book and Sheri Dew''s style of writing. Each chapter is short, often with a clever quote as the heading. For example, one of last chapters in the book has this title, "One question we''ve wrestled with is how to take the gospel in its simple purity and the ordinances with their eternal efficacy to all of God''s children without having basketball hoops get in the way." That particular chapter has a quote by a Muslim man who said, "When your Christianity is simple enough that I can take it with me on the back of a camel, I will be interested." There is a lot of food for thought on these pages. In an earlier chapter, a granddaughter said that "her grandfather is the one who taught her how to AirDrop photos." The book is over 400 pages, 400 pages of very interesting historical information, fun details, great stories, inspiring stories, some sad stories. Some of the information was very personal, some very spiritual. In a few cases I knew the story, but Sister Dew added intriguing background details that I hadn''t known. I am an avid reader, and I enjoy non-fiction simply because sometimes I need to put a book down and get to other things. I honestly had trouble putting this book down. At the end, I felt humbled. President Nelson has lived an incredible life, accomplished many wonderful and difficult challenges, but he is still a mortal man with sorrows, heartbreaks, tragedies, accidents, successes, honors, awards, he''s lived it all, and he''s done it quite humbly. I can recommend this book to anyone, LDS or not, religious or not. This is an extremely well-written biography of a very interesting man. I''m getting on in years, so I have a little mantra: "It takes a great life to make a good funeral." In this case, it takes a great life to make a good biography. Sister Dew had wonderful material to work with, and this book is as excellent as the biography of Gordon B. Hinckley.

What an INSPIRING and a wonderful tribute to this extra special man, President Russell M. Nelson! Every chapter was a blessing to read. I''m at a loss over how one reviewer felt the book was "dry and horribly boring." Not. At. All. And, yes1, plenty of photos are included in the book, but they are not just "fillers" but bonuses to us readers. I LOVE THIS BOOK! I get to the end of a chapter and can''t stop turning the page to read another.

And, yes2, another biography exists about President Nelson. Author Sheri Dew acknowledged it and she ALSO wrote she was not trying to take its place with her book but adding to the other since the former book was published years ago.

And, yes3, the price is up there, especially at Deseret Book--which is why I bought it here at Amazon (lower price + free shipping = THANK YOU, AMAZON!)--but it''s so worth it to read this book and see why he was called to be our prophet and president.

This book was an extensive review of the life of an extra-ordinary man. From his childhood, Russell M. Nelson has been doing hard things and doing them well. He has been obedient, although in his childhood he broke the alcohol bottles his parents had in their home because he knew it was wrong and was surprised he was not punished as a result. It took years before his parents finally came around totally and were sealed, something that he wished would happen for a long time.
I read the biography of Gordon B. Hinckley which was written by the same author, both are great works. This latest one was challenging to write since there was already a biography for most of his life in place, but Sheri handled it well, regardless.
Highly recommend.

This is a wonderfully informative and insightful look into the life of a man who now presides over an international church with over 16 million members. I have had the privilege, on two separate occasions, of meeting and sitting in council with this great man. What struck me on both occasions was that his greatness lies not in his worldly accomplishments, though he has many impressive ones (including world-renowned heart surgeon and pioneer in the development of the heart-lung machine, linguist, musician, diplomat, theologian, and ecclesiastical leader, and innovator), nor in his rhetorical skill, though he is an inspired and an inspiring speaker, nor in his charismatic presentation, though he can be very charming. Rather, for me his greatness seems to be centered in his humility, his kindness and thoughtfulness, and in his intense desire to awaken in those around him an appreciation for the meaning and grandeur of life, and the importance of coming to know God, and our relationship to Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. President Nelson radiates kindness and gentleness which manifests itself in small, simple acts of love, kindness, and respect towards those with whom he interacts. This book has helped me to understand the processes and experiences which helped to make him into the man of God that he is today.

I found I could not put this book down, and expect that ill read it many more times. I underlined passages that apply directly to experiences and issues of today, even though the passage I marked may have been from 40 or 50 years ago. He is a consummate leader and teacher and I appreciate the way Sheri Dew has woven these more personal stories and insights together to add to an existing biography. three years have passed since the writing of this book, and I already feel as though another volume could be written. We have never seen the likes of Russell M Nelson, nor have we seen the last. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious. I too had a witness of his calling, knowing he''d be prophet someday and finding great peace in his teachings. I know he was called of God and continues to receive revelation from him. I would follow him anywhere.

As I read through this book, I know that Russell M. Nelson is the Lord''s spokesman today. The Lord has always revealed his will to his children through his prophets. That''s what the scriptures are--words of the prophets. I have studied the Bible, and the Book of Mormon, which is another testament of Jesus Christ in the Americas, and this book supported what I have learned. "[President Nelson] has the unusual ability to tell the world and tell the Church ''how the gospel ticks, how the Lord works,'' and what the Restoration of the gospel means for everyone.” Dew, Sheri. His revelation about discovering the perfect laws upon which blessings are predicated has changed my life. If we can discover the law, like gravity, and obey the principles, we can receive the blessings from that law. Without gravity, we wouldn''t exist, and would give the phrase, ''flying off to new places'', all new meaning!

I like the way Sheri Dew writes. She allows us to see "inside" the person in an easy-to-understand manner. Sheri is a very educated person and could try to impress us with words where we would need a dictionary to understand them. However, she writes from her heart, and her exhaustive research brings us a "story" of a man that enables us to know and love him better, not only as a prophet of God, but as a human being who serves people because he loves them, as you can see in this photo of him reaching out to the children of Bangkok. Thank you Sheri for "Insights," and thank you Amazon for bringing us the Kindle edition.
