  • Moving in His Majesty and Power By Neal A. Maxwell, My father finished working on the manuscript of this book just ten days before he passed away By that time he had little energy, but in the last weeks of his life, he was focused intently on two almost consuming priorities spending time with his family, including giving blessings to grandchildren who had not yet received one, and finishing his last manuscript As theseMy father finished working on the manuscript of this book just ten days before he passed away By that time he had little energy, but in the last weeks of his life, he was focused intently on two almost consuming priorities spending time with his family, including giving blessings to grandchildren who had not yet received one, and finishing his last manuscript As these priorities exemplify, Neal A Maxwell was a teacher He loved the word of the Lord He believed with the psalmist that the word of the Lord is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path Psalm 119 105 He observed, When one sees life and people through the lens of His gospel, then one can see forever Ensign, May 1974, 112 That perspective guided his life s work Dad often said the gospel was inexhaustible, and his actions underscored that belief The gospel was for him an endless source of truth and joy he found the study of it invigorating He taught it in his daily walk and talk and through his sermons and books His desire to capture in words the insights and connections his perceptive mind noted stayed with him throughout his mortal life At my father s funeral, President Gordon B Hinckley noted I know of no other who spoke in such a distinctive and interesting way When he opened his mouth we all listened We came alive with expectation of something unusual, and we were never disappointed Each talk was a masterpiece, each book a work of art, worthy of repeated reading I think we shall not see one like him again Church News, 31 July 2004, 3 Moving in His Majesty and Power is the last installment in Elder Maxwell s printed legacy It includes, in revised form, three talks he gave in the last two years of his life and which he felt were worthy of publication It also includes a section of succinct, penetrating gospel insights on a wide variety of topics, similar in format to that of his previous work, W hom the Lord Loveth I hope you will enjoy this book More importantly, though, I hope my father s objective in writing it will be achieved, namely, to help us resolve to become committed disciples and to deepen our gratitude for the inexhaustible gospel he loved so deeply and proclaimed so tirelessly Cory H Maxwell

    1. Quick read Although each sentence is packed with meaning and implication Very enjoyable Perspective lifting every time I picked it up and read.

    2. Reading this the last book written by Elder Maxwell, finished in the last days of his life made me miss the man profoundly He had such an amazing ability to teach and expound truth in moving and beautiful prose In the introduction, Cory Maxwell says that at his father s funeral, it was said by President Hinckley, When he opened his mouth, we all listened We came alive with the expectation of something unusual, and we were never disappointed Each talk was a masterpiece, each book a work of art, w [...]

    3. This manuscript, finished just 10 days prior to his death brings to the reader a tender final testimony of a great man who suffered much through cancer that brought him to the end of his mortal life How I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it s over reaching impact in my life This I share with Neal A Maxwell Moving in His Majesty and Power is a compilation of thoughts of a man who first loved God with a love which informed and shaped his love for his fellowman He rejoiced in the creations He ma [...]

    4. Neal A Maxwell was and still is my favorite Apostle His words and messages have always spoken to me Someone In my ward was giving a talk one Sunday and kept referencing this book, which I was not aware that Neal A Maxwell had written before he passed away My first thought was I have to read this book, and I am so glad I did Besides bearing his testimony at the end Elder Maxwell talks about the infinite love that Jesus Christ has for each one of us Through out this book there are so many encourag [...]

    5. A great read This last work of Maxwell showcased in a relatively short space both his profound gospel insights and his skillful writing It was a combination of a few longer chapters with a few spots of brief unrelated quotes he seemed to want to take a dig at modern music and so did that with a few sentences and moved on Despite or perhaps because of all his metaphors and other literary devices it is his constant theme of discipleship that always stands Reading this book doesn t necessarily make [...]

    6. The book s deceptively simple There are so many hidden truths in these final words of his life Elder Maxwell s swan song that one needs to read over his insights slowly and carefully I appreciate that he worked so hard to share his wisdom and testimony right before he passed I miss his thoughtful words daily This book helps It also reminded me to watch Elder Maxwell s final talk in General Conference I would recommend that everyone reading this review go to YouTube to watch his talk from April 2 [...]

    7. Neal A Maxwell is, of course, a magnificent speaker and writer I found some gems in this book the last one prior to the author s death and there were many deep and important doctrines discussed However, I would have to say I prefer the books that were written cohesively after all, these essays were collected and put in this book to celebrate his life after his passing, and so were never meant by the author I surmise to hang together in style and narrative in quite the same way as his previous b [...]

    8. Incredibly cool All my wives have read it and think it is groovy Maxwell who keeps his silver hammer under his pillow was considered an Elder but in fact he is not so dimwitted as that He seems to have a certain touch of bigamy to him it is said that he is a merman but that is OK, especially when he nails Jesus as firmly to the cross as anybody ever has INRI I m Nailed Right In Hush your mouth

    9. Really loved this book I especially loved the chapters on conversion and the one on the Holy Ghost Two interesting quotes are When Jesus commends individuals in the scriptures, He commends them for their traits or qualities of character, suchas unwearyingness ,or integrity There is no music in hell However, some loud sounds are currently masquerading as music which would seem to help qualify hell as hell funny

    10. I loved this book and read it in one sitting There were so many wonderful truths within the pages and I fell in love with Elder Maxwell I m looking forward to reading books of his this year that I have on my list, and even listening to several of his talks The only thing I didn t love about this book was that it seemed a little disorganized to me Like I didn t know exactly what the objective was That didn t stop me, however, from learning and loving this book.

    11. Elder Maxwell combined these talks and insights shortly before his death Some of his insights are beyond my understanding, as are most of his books and talks, but his language and testimony are beautiful and I love this thought about death After all, in gospel grammar, death is not an exclamation point, merely a comma.

    12. This book is clearly unfinished, but what can you do I d rather see Elder Maxwell s last work published than not, and although many of the thoughts in this book weren t fleshed out, it was still well worth my time Each paragraph could become an entire conference talk it was wonderful to get a little glimpse inside Elder Maxwell s thoughts.

    13. Maxwell s books are always a gem This was his final book, completed just 10 days before he died of leukemia Sprinkled throughout are his crafted quotables He ends the book with his always powerful testimony of God Maxwell was an apostle for the Mormon church, and one of the church s most gifted writers.

    14. While it was interesting to hear some of Elder Maxwell s final thoughts before his passing, I thought the book was somewhat awkwardly organized There were lots of little snippets of thoughts, which some people might like, but I didn t really I would ve much preferred him to elaborate on just a couple of them, but that s personal preference.

    15. I love the words of Neil A Maxwell and was very touched by his testimony in this book He talks plain and simply about God s love and plan for us and how we can better allow his power into our lives I was reminded of how simple and beautiful the gospel is and my own testimony was strengthened I read this in one sitting and I loved every bit of it

    16. Maxwell continues to be one of my favorite go to s when I m in need of inspiration or answers This is a smaller book compiled from several of his works after he passed away I found it quite enjoyable and helpful.

    17. Read this one on Gospelink In brief yet powerful form Elder Maxwell bears his testimony on a variety of Gospel subjects I especially appreciate the discipleship and agency sermons he gives in this book.

    18. I ve always been very impressed by Maxwell s wisdom and insight I found his final testimony in this book particularly moving It was very interesting to read his final thoughts as his life was coming to an end.

    19. A simple and powerful book written by one of my favorite apostles I love reading his eloquent style that is delivered with such power This was finished just a week and a half before his death It truly does speak of what he stood for in his life I loved it.

    20. Lovely Maxwell You could tell this was his final labor of love, I think he may have run out of time on some of the thoughts, they weren t as complete as some of his previous work Nonetheless it was still wonderful.

    21. Ah, Brother Maxwell in a small book that I can read and ponder his thoughts without being overwhelmed He is such a deep thinker that this is just the right amount of his profound thoughts at one time.

    22. Of course I had never thought about truth in these ways before Uplifting, refreshing, hopeful, inspiring Short and deep Definately reccommend.

    23. Got this as a Christmas gift from my sister Don t remember alot of it but I love Elder Maxwell s analogies and word choice.

    24. You can read any of the 2 3 page essays and think for hours about their application in your life, your personal experiences, and what meaning they have to you I just love to read Elder Maxwell

    25. Elder Maxwell s book are an ongoing read They are excellent to get quotes from and to read a little at a time for inspiration from an apostle of God that is a very faithful servant.

    26. I love Elder Neal A Maxwell He says things so eloquently This was his last book he ever wrote He wrote it right before his death Excellent.
