The appointment of Elder LeGrand Richards to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles marked the close of his administration as the seventh presiding Bishop of the Church, which position he had occupied since April 14, 1938.
Elder Richards has often been heard to say that the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is his first love and that its promulgation is his greatest ambition. A combined period of ten years spent in filling for missions for the Church affirms the truth of his expressed feelings.
He learned to love his people as their ward bishop and his larger fold as their stake president.
But his great love for his fellow men has never been limited to members of the Church alone. He is a forceful living example of the doctrine that we are our brother's keeper.
In this book, the rich and purposeful experiences of his abundant life, and the unfeigned feelings of his heart, combine to extend both the hand and the heart of fellowship to the House of Judah.
This book contains a direct and vital message to Jewish people everywhere.
The prophets of Judah have outlined, in explicit detail, the part their people will play in the great religious drama of "the latter days'. The author has undertaken, in deep humility, the challenging task of placing the prophecies of the past in their undeniable relationship to the fast moving events of the present and the promising future.
The book portends to become another great missionary volume to match the author's "A Marvelous Work and a Wonder" which latter work has already proven of inestimable value in missionary work, in class rooms, and in private study.
This book deals entirely with the inescapable and interlocking destiny of the tribe of Judah and of the tribe of Joseph through Ephraim and Manassseh.
To the hopeful end that all of the descendants of Judah, who love truth, may receive and be filled; and to the hopeful end that the righteous descendants of Joseph may feed as they have been fed; and to the hopeful end that barriers, imagined or real, may give way to fellowship and good will, each toward the other, this book has been prayerfully and thoughtfully prepared.'
