It has been said that "The Lord endowed Elder Brown with some extraordinary talents. One was the power of speech, another was his gift to inspire." Hugh B. Brown was shaped and fashioned into a great leader through a life of business, church activity, and military service. He had the ability to both lead and be a companion to those he served, and people of all ages trusted his insight and respected his judgment. Elder Brown served with distinction as first counselor to President David O. McKay.
You will enjoy this pair of classic addresses. President Brown's irrefutable evidence that Joseph Smith was a prophet and his analogy of God as the perfect Gardener are among his most beloved talks. His gift for speaking with wit, eloquence, and sincerity will entertain and inspire you.
