Title: Moroni’s Guide to Surviving Turbulent Times

Book Summary:

The prophet Moroni, who spent at least the last twenty years of his life alone and wandering to avoid being captured and killed, has in the latter days become one of the symbols of our religion. His statue watches over nearly every temple and has been depicted on the cover of millions of copies of the Book of Mormon in dozens of languages.

In this book, best-selling author John Bytheway suggests that Moroni’s last words were both intensely personal and universally applicable. In the closing chapters of the Book of Mormon we discover a wonderful formula for surviving today’s turbulent times. Moroni’s topics, and even the sequence in which he shared them, become a strategy for remaining steadfast and true in our day. John suggests that whatever latter-day challenges we face, we can successfully navigate them by “likening Moroni.”


I love reading and listening to John Bytheway. He takes gospel truths and shares them in a way that I can relate to and understand. This book focuses on the teachings and writings of Moroni in the Book of Mormon so it is obviously an LDS/Mormon specific title.

In this book, John Bytheway shows us how to liken the teaching of Moroni unto ourselves. Chapter by chapter he takes us through the writings of Moroni and shares insights and strategies for how we can use the word of Moroni to navigate the challenges we face in our day. Filled with many great quotes from latter-day prophets, apostles, and leaders this is a little gem of a book that I highly recommend to all member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
