The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will hold a celebration in honor the 40th anniversary marking the receipt of the revelation on the priesthood.
In conjunction with this anniversary, Dennis B. Horne has graciously provided selections from his recent book, I Know He Lives, which includes rare behind-the-scenes accounts of the priesthood revelation by Elder Bruce R. McConkie.
Gary Bergera is managing director of the Smith-Pettit Foundation, Salt Lake City, and editor of “Confessions of A Mormon Historian: The Diaries of Leonard J. Arrington, 1971-1999.”
I recently had the privilege to interview Dennis B. Horne.
Horne is the author of several books, including “Bruce R. McConkie: Highlights from his Life and Teachings,” “Called of God by Prophecy,” and “I Know He Lives: How 13 Special Witnesses Came to Know Christ.”
