A detailed view of LDS history from the modern period. From the dust jacket- "Reflecting the optimism of his time, Henry D. Moyle (1889-1963), counselor in the First Presidency of the LDS church, approached every endeavor on a grand scale. He thought the Church Office Building should have been twice its existing twenty-eight stories. As overseer of the Church Building Committee, he spearheaded a bold spend-now, pay-later policy ('Build for the next ten years') on the assumption that larger chapels would attract more converts... Ultimately these utopian views proved unfeasible. As the church neared bankruptcy President David O. McKay found it necessary to relieve Moyle of all administrative responsibilities. Even so, Moyle influence can be seen today."
