Brand new hardcover book! ; Education is more than preparing for life," George H. Brimhall once said. "It is life." His love for education was first instilled in him by his mother. Education became his constant passion, sustaining him through humble beginnings as a Utah pioneer to his pivotal role as president of Brigham Young University. For him, the motivating force behind education was the Latter-day Saint doctrine of eternal progress. As a teacher at BYU and then its president (1904-1921) , Brimhall was known as a dynamic orator and as a compassionate administrator whose primary desire was to help students succeed. Brimhall's faith in and devotion to his religion coincided with his love for learning, and he believed it was BYU's unique mission to become a university where spiritual education and secular education supported each other. During times of conflict, disappointment, personal tragedy, and great economic uncertainty, Brimhall steadfastly steered the school through the growing pains of its early years toward its unique mission. ; 6" x 9"; 245 pages; 0842527656
