J. Golden Kimball, LDS Blog Tour & Giveaway

Book Summary:

He is J. Golden Kimball, and when he is gone, there will never be another. He was the original product, and when Providence had finished him, the pattern was lost and never found again.
LDS Church history is comprised of the accounts of multitudes of men and women who set the groundwork for the Church. And while there are plenty of ordinary individuals woven into that patchwork of history, there are also a handful of unique individuals who enliven the past and provide inspiration for the future. Known as the “swearing Apostle,” J. Golden Kimball is just such a character, one whose legacy of colorful language is surpassed only by his fierce loyalty to the gospel.
In J. Golden Kimball: The Remarkable Man Behind the Colorful Stories, readers are invited to come to better know this legendary man made famous by his unique humor and powerful testimony. From a chronicle of Kimball’s youthful adventures to the legacy he forged in his more than forty years as a General Authority, gear up for a rollicking ride through the life of one of the liveliest servants of the Lord.

My Review:

I thought this would be more of the funny stories I grew up hearing about J. Golden Kimball. What is nice about this book is that it gives actual history of his father and of himself, so we get to know more of the facts than the myths. It made J. Golden more a real person than this legend/myth he has become. There is a lot of information in this book and even side snippets on almost every page that gives a little story or piece of additional information. This is a very well put together book with all of the historical facts.

Happy Reading!!!
