For more than six and a half decades David O. McKay served in the leading councils of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, from his call to be an apostle in 1906 until his death, in 1970, after serving some nineteen years as president, prophet, seer, and revelator of the Church.
From the wisdom of this inspirational leader came pleas to every individual to prepare for the second coming of the Savior, to be a missionary for the gospel of Jesus Christ, to delight in serving the Lord, to be worthy of and relish the blessings of faith, to be strengthened by keeping the commandments, to grow spiritually through study of the scriptures, to be in the world and yet not of the world.
Never less than the best example of all that he taught, this beloved prophet revealed his compassionate spirit in the often-quoted line, "I believe that there is in every human soul something good calling for something better."
Gospel Ideals is a compilation of some of the most inspirational and thought-provoking words of this great prophet-leader and has become a classic in Mormon literature since its first printing on President McKay's eightieth birthday anniversary in 1953.
