This absorbing biography not only tells the story of how a dedicated disciple was prepared for his calling, but also, perhaps more than any other biography, teaches the gospel. This book is unique because its unhurried preparation — a six-year process — allowed the author to explore who Elder Packer really is: a very private man, a man of humor, simple tastes, and complex dimensions.
