Leadership for the Violent Last Days : LDS Guide for Surviving the Dark Years to Come
Author: George Potter
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginnings of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened (Matthew 24:21-22).
Leading the Lord's people takes more than just the ability to delegate. It takes steadfast, enduring faith in God and the self-control to live up to the standards being taught. Although not perfect, good leaders strive for perfection and continually lift those around them as they climb. They aren't afraid to labor alongside those they are called to serve.
The challenge facing the leadership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in our day is to teach the Lord's people how to survive the calamities prophesied to come forth in this last dispensation-our time. Leadership for the Violent Last Days offers inspired counsel to those who desire to be more than a mediocre leader. It was written for those who are motivated by their love for the Lord and His children and want to make a difference.
The safety and refuge found in Zion are not made of brick and mortar. It is a community molded from the pure hearts of its people (D&C 97:12); a sanctuary based on the laws of the celestial kingdom. As the Lord's chosen people, we can build this perfect city together-the city of Zion-the pure in heart.
