; As one of the LDS Church’s most widely recognized scholars, Hugh Nibley is both an icon and an enigma. Through complete access to Nibley’s correspondence, journals, notes, and papers, Petersen has painted a portrait that reveals the man behind the legend. Church leaders have praised Hugh Nibley as a loyal defender of the faith who has challenged us to take our faith more seriously. President Gordon B. Hinckley has stated that he has ‘respected him highly for his great scholarship and for his quiet and humble manner. He knows what he is talking about, but he does not shout it. ’ Elder Neal A. Maxwell has stated how grateful he is that ‘the Lord didn’t put Hugh in some monastery in the middle ages to plow through the parchments, when, instead, he has been such a rich part of the Restoration’s forward movement. ’ Starting with a foreword written by Zina Nibley Petersen (the author’s wife and Nibley’s daughter) and finishing with appendices that include some of the best of Nibley’s personal correspondence, the biography reveals aspects of the tapestry of the life of one who has truly consecrated himself to the service of the Lord. ; 7.5" x 10.5"; 446 pages; 1589580206
