Today there are many subjects being discussed because of the controversies all around us. It should be evident to all that we need divine direction, since men and women who argue about these controversies seem to be unable to come to workable or peaceable solutions. It is sad indeed that the world does not know or accept the fact that in our midst is a prophet through whom God can direct the solution of world problems. - N. Eldon Tanner, “The Debate is Over,” Liahona, June 1980
“No text nor volume outside of the standard works of the Church should have such a prominent place on your personal library shelves [as the General Conference issue of the Ensign], not because of their rhetorical excellence, nor the eloquence of delivery, but for the content which points the way to eternal life” (The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, p. 523).
