Cover has some light edge and corner wear. ; In the glory days of Harvard University, a certain graduating student was given two honorary awards--one for demonstrating the greatest depth of knowledge, and one for displaying the greatest breadth of knowledge. That student was John A. Widtsoe, the immigrant son of a Norwegian schoolmaster and a fishermaiden. As a scientist, he changed the face of the American West with his work in irrigation and dry farming. As a writer, he drew on both his remarkable intellect and his deep-seated faith to answer questions about the relationship of science and religion. As an educator, he solved problems and established programs whose influence is still felt today. As a Church leader, he advanced missionary work in Europe, strengthened members at home, and made enormous contributions to genealogy and temple work. ; 6.25" x 9.25"; 768 pages; 1570087709
