Summary
"Ordained as an apostle in 1906, David O. McKay served as president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1951 until his death in 1970. Under his leadership, the church experienced unparalleled growth, nearly tripling in total membership and becoming a significant presence throughout the world." "The first book to draw upon the David O. McKay Papers at the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah - in addition to some two hundred interviews conducted by the authors - David O. McKay and the Rise of Modern Mormonism focuses primarily on the years of McKay's presidency."--Jacket
