I've recently finished this book. It contained excellent information! I would highly recommend it to any who are wanting to read more about preparing and Prophetic Statements on Food Storage.
The author writes "The degree of our preparation will equal the extent of our obedience, which will determine the measure of our peace of mind."
He has served as a Bishop twice, as a counselor in the Stake Presidency, High Council member for decades, Seminary teacher, Elder's quorum President and numerous other callings including those related to food storage and personal and family preparedness.
Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson
