Side One: Profile of a Prophet
It has been said that "The Lord endowed Elder Brown with some extraordinary talent. One was his power of speech, another was his gift to inspire." In this talk Brother Brown shares an experience he had in England with a non-member friend asking him to prepare a brief on Mormonism while the friend listened as a judge. Together they came up with "a profile of a prophet," and then measured Joseph Smith to this profile. Brother Brown shares strong testimony and powerful insights on the Prophet Joseph Smith, and what his friend concluded about the brief.
Side Two: God is the GardenerIn this inspiring talk, Brother Brown discusses the importance of developing a relationship with God and remembering that we have the potential inside to be as he is. He teaches a powerful lesson on letting God lead us by telling the touching personal story of God is the Gardener.
During my mission in New Zealand, I used a tape with Profile of a Prophet to help reenforce what we were teaching. Elder Hugh B. Brown gave a wonderful talk on how to recognize a Prophet and why we need them today.
God is the Gardener tells of Bro. Browns experience in WWI as a field officer and was about to be a General. But then the Lord took over and made him an Apostle.
