|King Benjamin's Speech: "That Ye May Learn Wisdom" (Hard Cover Book)|
|Written by: Stephen D. Ricks, and John W. Welch|
|This is the most substantial collection of studies ever to focus exclusively on King Benjamin's speech. The first essay, by Elder Neal A. Maxwell, discusses the main spiritual messages and personal character of Benjamin and sees the speech as a manual for discipleship.|
Essays by Hugh Nibley and other LDS scholars explore Benjamin's place in Nephite history and the qualities of the speech that make it a masterful oration and consummate work of sacred literature. The complete text of Benjamin's speech is presented with detailed notes, cross-references, and textual commentary. Also included is a comprehensive bibliography of LDS writings about the speech.
